Well like alot of people I made the mistake of selecting safeboot in the boot.ini file in the msconfig file after my comp got a virus and would not boot into safemode. The hard drive is in two partitions: the C drive used to contain windows, and the D drive which has the data i am trying to save.
I don't have a Windows XP disc because it was already on the comp when i bought it. I have attempted to restore the windows files with Bart PE bootup image disc but it wiped out Windows XP completely from the C drive in the process, but the Data drive is still showing up with all its files intact. So i purchased a external hard drive and then tried to use Bart PE to backup the data but it would stop right in the middle of the backup.
Is there a easier way to just drag all my data files right to my external drive? I am really trying to get these files back.
Thank you in advance
