Before restoring operating system to factory default I wish to first copy my personal data from hard drive.
I bought a KNOPPIX cd which boots and runs but I don't see my Hard drive icons on the desktop.
My Acer Aspire 8920 Runs Vista Home Premium 64 and has 2-320Gb HDD and is still under warranty.
Acer support, in broken english, has told me to go to the nearest repair shop to save my data before restoring!
I failed to learn my lesson as this is the second time this has happened with this computer and I failed to back up all my data.
Reading other forums, I just remembered that the startup message said: "Check cable conection!"
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.........
