Arrow MS DOS Floppy Disk

Hi everyone, I know this is probably a silly question but I have to make it. How can i edit data (copy, move, rename etc) saved to my hard disk (C:\...) when I boot from a floppy disk (DOS). It seems that I can only edit data saved to the floppy disk (A:\) and I can not access any other drives. Thanks in advance...

DOS doesn't support NTFS. Your "C:\" drive is probably NTFS.

I was going to suggest that but usually when I say the word "Linux" in the Windows section, everyone gets all butt-hurt and it starts a big argument.

what you have to do is make a windows xp ms-dos floppy so it can understand NTFS.

you can make one by formatting the disk and clicking "make ms-dos boot disk" before clicking "Format"

"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
