Our computer's system32 failed and has caused it to be unable to start properly and i got some really important work on it, is it possible to extract the files out of the computer etc as a external hard drive,
NOTE: Failsafe mode does not work and any other forms of computer access.

plug the drive into a working pc with a OS installed on a different drive and just go into the other drive and start copying what u want, and wipe the old drive clean and reinstall OS, obviously the drive u want files off can be plugged internally via sata or ide, or externally using either a hot swap bay or u can purchase a sata/ide to usb adapter that will be used as a external hdd
