My uncles computer crashed and it failed to load windows do to "missing system file". i want to do a clean install but first i want to rescue some songs and videos he has on the hard drive before i wipe it all clean.
here is what i was thinking of doing. taking his hard drive out (we will call it drive A) and puting it as a secondary drive in my computer then boot off of my hard drive (drive B) and just manually taking all the files i want to save frome drive A and store them in drive B. then put drive A back into my uncles computer preform the clean install and put the files back.
Any other ideas on how i can save the info on the doomed drive A? Is my idea of drive swapping a really bad one?
thanks for the support.
