    Exposing hidden folders in Windows XP


    How can I see hidden folders in Windows XP when I boot using Knoppix? I need to copy the contents from a Outlook Express account to a USB drive. The files that are needed are located in:
    C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    Thank you for looking.

    Hello and Welcome!

    Knoppix should have your drives and partitions located on your desktop when you boot. Have yo tried to right-click on them to mount them and check the permissions? After that, it's usually a matter of opening them up like any other folder.
