Is there a way to access the c$ share of a server from another computer and gain complete access regardless of the file system privileges? Perhaps the 'system' account can do this, can I access this account? Also, for my purposes, I need to keep this system live, so I can't just mount the file system on Linux or anything like that (other than mounting the c$ share)
Right now, My tape backup drive is not working. Until this is fixed, there is a windows file sharing server that I want to manually backup to an array. This server can't have the array directly attached to it. I can either access the computer with the array shared from the file server, or the other way around.
However, when I try to just copy the files from the file sharing host I get a can't copy file error that causes the copy to abort. The reason, I think, is that administrator does not have privileges to access the shares right now. Even though the administrator account can grant this access, I would rather not mess with the privileges.
