Recovery Console: Allow floppy copy and access to all drives and folders

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options


Enabling this option enables the Recovery Console SET command, which allows you to set the following Recovery Console environment variables:

  • AllowWildCards - Enable wildcard support for some commands (such as the DEL command).
  • AllowAllPaths - Allow access to all files and folders on the computer.
  • AllowRemovableMedia - Allow files to be copied to removable media, such as a floppy disk.
  • NoCopyPrompt - Do not prompt when overwriting an existing file.

By default, the SET command is disabled and all these variables are not enabled.
