I'm trying to make my own Windows Recovery USB to repair a damaged NTFS file system running Windows 7.
I have a second (working) machine running Windows 8. I've formatted the USB and have copied most of the boot files from the Windows 8 folders but I can't seem to access the Recovery folder, even after taking ownership on the admin account and giving myself Full Control.
What am I doing wrong?
tl;dr I essentially just need to run chkdsk from a usb to fix the NTFS partition on a corrupted HDD. Is there a simpler way?
