Found an important problem when using Unstoppable Copier...

It skips UAC \'protected\' folders to which the user doesn't have ownership (e.g. when copying a harddrive from another PC).

Worse still, it skips these folders without any warning/logging of the problem. They don't show in the skipped or error list.

Quite often these protected folders are the most important data on the drive (i.e. the user's documents, pictures, etc). For example, a user's windows profile directory (e.g. C:\Users\JoeBloggs) gets skipped entirely.

The folders don't get copied unless I browse the folder first in explorer and accept the UAC prompt to continue (taking ownership I think). So I suspect this is some kind of UAC issue.

Hope you get chance to fix this problem as its quite dangerous if users don't notice.

Thanks once again for such a great tool!
