  • How to access inaccessible directories?

    I copied a directory tree from the old server to the new server, using robocopy. Then I used B.C.3 to compare them. But, I saw that I could not access some directories. I took ownership of both directories, changed their security settings. And I saw that robocopy had copied all data, keeping rights, even if as the Administrator I had not access. It seems that robocopy works in backup mode and so is able to workaround these situations. Is it possible to do this with B.C.3, I mean use the backup mode to access directories that otherwise are forbidden? Or can You add this to the wishlist?

    Thank You very much

    It isn't possible to access files and folders your user account is denied access to using backup mode in BC 3.0.15. Support for this is on our wish list for a future version.
