Hi All,

If I were to start up a non-bootable PC with the Windows 7 (64 Bit) Emergency Startup disk, does that give you access to the USB ports so that you could copy files onto an external storage device in this kind of environment?

USB drivers are built into the OS, so assuming the recovery disk is for the system in question then yes, you should be able to do what you want. What's the harm in trying?
