Maybe I am not quite understanding something; I opened cmd and typed exactly as shown and when I hit "enter" all I got was "access denied"; I closed cmd and opened again, except this time I right-clicked and "open as administrator", typed the command again, hit "enter" and nothing whatsoever happened that I could see.

What am I missing ?

Thanks for reading.


On EDIT: >> Now that I have access to the contents, can I copy everything to a separate folder for further processing and remove the letter from the partition ?
About every two seconds, I am getting a warning that the drive K: is full and the situation needs immediate attention; this soon becomes annoying.

This bit of the command [>c:\list.txt] created a file on C called list.txt

Yes.

Suggest you attach list.txt to a post. Same way you attached your pictures.
