Alternatively, if you only wish to backup your data, then you could simply drag-and-drop the files from source to destination. pjmelect a b G Storage August 14, 2011 1:59:20 AM I assume that the computer is not working so you will have to remove the hard drive and fit it in another computer or fit it to a USB to SATA/IDE converter to another computer and back up your data.
