The easiest thing to do would just be take the drive out, plug it in a desktop and grab what you need.

UBCD4WIN and various live CDs will allow you to boot to a baby OS off CD/DVDs or USB and access the drive to copy to an external drive or DVD. You could also make an image of the entire drive to another and then reinstall and access the image

Check out the first example:
Quote:

To copy all the files and subdirectories (including any empty subdirectories) from drive A to drive B, type:
xcopy a: b: /s /e


So first thing is to know, what are the letters that your drives are assigned to. Let's say your system drive is C:, and the USB drive is G:

First create a directory on the USB drive
  1. cd G:\
  2. mkdir backup


Then copy everything over:
  1. xcopy C: G:\backup /s /e /i /h
