Once you've got the Recovery Console installed, this tweak will enable the
SET command, which will in turn, enable access to all files and folders, among other things. Save this fragment as
ConfigureRecoveryConsole.Reg or similar, or manaully change the settings using RegEdit:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Setup\RecoveryConsole] "SetCommand"=dword:00000001 "SecurityLevel"=dword:00000000
SecurityLevel=1 will cause the Recovery Console not to require administrator password.
Anyway, once done, the following commands SET commands will be enabled (actually, all can be entered using one SET command):
set AllowAllPaths = true set AllowRemovableMedia = true set AllowWildCards = true set NoCopyPrompt = true
Do this at your own risk! I disclaim any responsibility for anything that may (or may not) happen.
