You can use rescue live CD to safe your files for example you can use KNOPPIX bootable live CD.

If you have no means of creating rescue live CD then you can use Xcopy command to copy your files and folders to external storage drive. You can execute XCopy command from Command Prompt press Shift + F10 to open Command Prompt.

 

Xcopy Command Line

Yeah sometimes the best way to get files from windows when you have to back it up is to use a linux of some kind.

You have another computer?
