I can't help you that much but I think that you have a NTFS system file (not FAT32), so you must logon with Windows Console to get access to these files or use a NTFS Reader application to have access... I don't know how BART CD manages it...

yes, i'm using NTFS (as per the topic).... I don't think BART CD does manage protected directories...  can i use windows console within bart??  I'm just looking for a way to get these files off my system onto a remote drive

What exactly does "protected" mean - encypted?

If the files are not encrypted, you should be able to access them from avast! BART.
