Hi there,

I had a hard drive die, (SMART error). After restoring the system, I hooked up the old hard drive to try to recover a few files. I was able to boot the system on a Windows 10 USB boot stick, and from a command prompt I was able to copy a few files onto the USB stick. However, when I plugged the stick into a system running windows 10, the old files I copied onto the usb are nowhere to be seen. Where are the files? (USB stick is FAT32, shows no other partitions.)

Didn't use any options. The command was roughly

xcopy "c:\somefiles" "x:\somefiles"

I verified they copied to x: then removed the old hard drive.
