Solved Recovering Data from hard drive. Tags: Windows Safe Mode Storage Hard Drives Last response: November 30, 2013 3:10 PM in Storage Share derekc5475 November 30, 2013 1:31:26 PM Hi, My current windows begins to startup repair itself whenever it opens and stays in the perpetual cycle. I left it on overnight and nothing changed. Safe mode does not load as it just gets stuck at the loading screen. If I transfer the hard drive to my second computer, can I boot with my normal hard drive then access files on this broken one?
