Recovery Console

By pentrex ·
I tried to use the Recovery Console XP/2000 to recover data from a corrupted HD. When I entered the command: "set allowallpaths=true", I got the message:

"The SET command is an optional Recovery Console command that can only be enabled by using Security Configuration and Analysis snap-in."

How can I find, use and enable that Security Configuration/Analysis snap in?

Thanks. But the link doesn't say anything about enabling Security Configuration and Analysis snap-in. Just how to install and use the RC. However, I figured it out. You need to enable it through the Local Security Settings. I enabled it but still cannot have access to all files . A message "Access denied " pops up after I tried to copy some files. Why the heck it is denied if I work as an administrator?

The reason it is denied

Is because that is how it is set through the corrupted OS. Personally I wouldn't have bothered with the Recovery Console and used Knoppix to get my data off the drive.

It's faster and safer not to mention far less hassle.
