C:\Recovery Access denied
I'm trying to fix " Cannot create system repair disc "with this guide. I'm trying to copy winre.wim to recovery. When it asks if I want to replace and I press Yes, it says access denied.
Open a elevated command prompt.
Type bcdedit /enum all
You will see an entry (probably several) that says C:\Recovery\(some long string)\winre.wim,(same long string)
Make the following directory based on the value (some long string) that is shown above. For example purposes only:
If folder already exists, great
Insert your Windows 7 install DVD and cancel any autorun prompts. Assumption is that D: is your CD/DVD drive - change accordingly ;-)
copy d:\sources\boot.wim c:\Recovery\0b3447fa-c429-11de-afd2-bdec487c77bb\winre.wim (or just open in explorer and drag d:\sources\boot.wim to the folder on your HDD and rename it to winre.wim - this is the all important part!
copy d:\boot\boot.sdi c:\Recovery\0b3447fa-c429-11de-afd2-bdec487c77bb
copy d:\boot\bootfix.bin c:\Recovery\0b3447fa-c429-11de-afd2-bdec487c77bb
Remember, the folder "0b3447fa-c429-11de-afd2-bdec487c77bb" will probably not be the same on your machine...run bcdedit /enum all and find the correct name of the folder from the list (which will have "C:\Recovery" and "winre.wim" in the entry)
Ruin recdisc.exe and voila you can make your recovery CD/DVD ;-)

Run the commands from System Recovery Options Command Line.
That is a lot of work to preserve the worst possible install of Windows 7 one can have. The factory preinstall is a corrupt version of Windows 7 throttled by bloatware and duplicate utilities which conflict with better versions built into Windows 7. Thats why most tech enthusiasts won't even run it but instead choose to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 .
At the minimum I'd Clean Up Factory Bloatware until you can get the superior reinstall, then save a Windows 7 backup image of the optimized install instead of Factory Recovery. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
