Good to know.

You can run 'psexec -s -i cmd.exe' (at an elevated prompt if vista+) to open a cmd prompt running as SYSTEM - then execute whatever commands, batch files etc.

Or, for a one-liner, something like this:

psexec -s -i xcopy /I "C:\System Volume Information\chkdsk" "%temp%\chkdsk.%time::=_%"

Cheers,
