Grrr ok let me figure something out.
I remember you may need to mount the drive but I have to figure out where to do that.
I'm also checking into another program Ubuntu and BartsPE.
Both are suppose to allow for the backup of data when system won't boot.

OK if you are on the Desktop then there should be a File Manager or Windows Explorer program there to look at your files.
There also should be a cdrom burning software located there to backup your files.
Let me reboot and look as it has been awhile since I used the program.

OK finally looked at my Puppy and this is how I found the files.
First thing is look at the bottom left and you will see a couple of icons. One will be labeled something similar to SDA0 or SDA1
If you click on it you should see your files on the drive now.
If this happens then follow the next steps...

  • At the bottom of the desktop click on Menu
  • Now click on Multimedia and then click on Pburn
  • Install the burner software and use default settings
  • When the software finally starts look on the left for the Browse window
  • In the small window type in the following /mnt/sda1/ and click the open or browse button to the right

Now all you files should be displayed.
Find the data and add them to your burn. Once done then click the burn or the key to start the burning process. (Sorry didn't go this far into it to tell you exactly)
