How to copy files from someone’s system (which is protected too, obviously) without letting him know?

I once faced a problem in booting that showed a NO READ HEAD error. Now, that error sounds really horrible because if there is really a no read head, you definitely gonna have a real hard time. But I guess it actually didn’t mean what it actually said because when I inserted my OS boot-DVD in the DVD drive, it read that 🙂 I started the booting process.

But, before that I tried the repair process that was on the DVD. After starting the repair process, a System Recovery Options window popped up. It had two buttons – Load Drivers and Next. What we are concerned here with is Load drivers. On selecting that, an Add Drivers window pops up. It’s a confirmation window with buttons OK and Cancel. We select OK and again a pop up Window appears, that says Open. Well actually, it’s for opening the particular drivers that you think is missing during booting process. But, it has a bug. Yes you are right! It’s here where you gonna do your copy and paste work. Just open the drive (C:, D:, E: whatever) that contains the file to be copied and copy the file and paste that in your pen drive.

Done with this remove your pen drive and Shut Down the system. That’s it!

There is also a Send to option. But it has no path specified, making it useless.

The biggest advantage is – it doesn’t require any file to be Shared with Everyone to be accessible. And, your user would never come to know that a file was actually copied as you didn’t boot the original OS. So, even the event manager would show nothing to the user if he uses that.

  1. Thank you for another magnificent article. Where else could anybody get that type of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m on the look for such info.
