I have a database on a hard drive from a computer whose motherboard died. The HD is fine.
I'm trying to XCOPY the data directory and overwrite the contents of a Postgres 8.4 data directory on another computer.
I'm getting Access Denied. I have verified that the Postgres service is stopped. The target computer has 2 user accounts, one of which is "Postgres" which the Postgres install created. I have tried this logging in with similar results using both accounts.
Any ideas or even an alternate approach much appreciated.
