    when i follow these inscuctions group policy is not among the options,the closest is (shared folders)

    Allow Access to all folders and removable media:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type mmc in the Open box, and then click OK.
    2. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in, and then click Add.
    3. Click Group Policy, and then click Add.
    4. Click Local Computer, click Finish, and then click Close to return to the Add/Remove Snap-in dialog box.
    5. Click OK to return to the Console window.
    6. Expand the Local Computer Policy object to Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options.
    7. Select the Security Options object in the Console pane to display the security policies in the Details pane.
    8. In the Details pane, double-click the Recovery Console: Allow Floppy Copy And Access To All Drives And Folders policy.
    9. Click Enabled, and then click OK.

    no group policy in Home. That's what separates Home from Pro. There are a lot of missing MMC snap-ins. Sorry dewd. Most Home users wouldn't know what to do with those options.

    Also look in the Recovery Console thread for a way to enable this setting in XP Home. Thanks to yoyo for that :)

    To enable this in XP Home you have to make the change directly in the registry. Navigate to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ Setup\ RecoveryConsole

    and change the value for "SetCommand" from 0 to 1.


    edit: Thought I'd repeat it here. Didn't see your answers, NetRyder :rolleyes:
