Glad to hear that you managed to copy off your important stuff... I guess its just a question now of you being able to find it?
I have tried copy and xcopy. Some stuff went somewhere, but not to my external.
1 It would be good to copy the data files to an external (USB hard drive)...here's the information on how to do that:
There are some alternatives:
2 You could boot into a live distro of Linux Puppy (which will run entirely within RAM) and use Puppy to copy across, folder by folder, to a memory stick or external USB hard drive, all your important stuff.
Details available from here:
3 I would be inclined not to remove the hard drive from your computer because of possible warranty implications, unless you receive and record Dell's agreement to this...if they do agree then you can use either a USB hard drive caddy or "slave/add" it to another computer. to copy across your data files.
If you are not comfortable working inside your computer or do not understand fully the personal safety and ESD (anti static) precautions necessary then you could ask a local competent computer technician to perform these actions for you.
