I have a PC that a friend of mine deleted a bunch of system files on, so I am going to reinstall the whole thing. I would like to get his personal stuff off of the PC first though. I was planning on downloading the OTLPE.ISO and getting his files but that link no longer works. Is there a different bootable OS or a different location for that one around. Suggestions please.

Thanks, Bob

Linux distros are the only ones I'm aware of.

FWIW: The OTLPE isos were removed due to a determination that such were an infringement of Microsoft patents/copyrights. Ditto for the previously downloadable .iso files reflecting the XP Recovery Console.

IMO...the simplest solution would be to just attach the hard drive to another system...and move the desired files from one drive to another.
