comment How to change the content ownership of an external HDD under Windows 7 for backup (all folders at once)?
I would definitely suggest elevating the command prompt, particularly if you're taking ownership of files.

comment How to change the content ownership of an external HDD under Windows 7 for backup (all folders at once)?
I just updated my answer with a solution which should work from Windows 7 directly. However, if you want to go ahead with the Linux method, use a distro like Ubuntu which has a GUI. You can copy-paste just the way you would in Windows. You won't damage your Windows installation as long as you don't go around deleting random things or telling it to install, rather than do a live boot.

@Farseeker, excellent suggestion; thanks. I use robocopy regularly, but forgot that it's included by default in Windows 7, since I always had to install it manually in XP.

comment Automated method to convert .reg registry file to reg.exe commands
That's usually the best solution indeed, just having them separate. But sometimes it's helpful to have everything in one file, particularly when you have to distribute that file to users and would rather avoid having to distribute several files. Thanks for the input though.
