[SOLVED] Help backing up NTFS drive
So I've been trying almost for a week now to backup my XP SATA boot drive since it crashed and sent me the message unable to load OS. I am running Knoppix 6.2 Live CD. Everything went smooth on the beginning, I booted from the CD, explored my NTFS drive found out that my files remained all there, i opened some of them just to make sure they were not corrupted or something and then went on and bought and formated (ext3) a new drive to backup the original drive, and once I was ready to get started I couldn't get the data from one drive to the other.
Here is the thing, my Desktop only shows up two icons one is Knoppix and the other one is My Docs, so I went to PCMan File Manager and once there tried unmounting the destination drive to get the info from the source drive copied. However i realized that everytime i unmounted the drive PCMan displayed on the bottom of the screen - "n visible files (n hidden). Free space. 0 byte (total. 0 byte)" - (n being any number of course) so i assumed that the info wasn't really getting where i wanted it to get, so i mounted the drive double cheked and find out that as a matter of fact nothing was really copied to it, so i tried going into file properties changing the write permissions but it won't let me, if i try to copy files to a mounted disk the screen will just burst into flames, if i try the same procedure above through root shell instead of the graphic interphase it wont work either.
One last thing the route for my drives are as follow.
XP boot drive /media/sda1
Second partition on XP drive /media/sda2
New ext3 formatted drive /media/sdb1
Thanks in advance.
