TERRIFIC EVERYTHING seems to be there. Could you please tell me how I save it all to this laptop.


Ok, Go back to the Parted Magic Mount and click the mount button on the line of /dev/sda3 this one is your Windows installation on the disk.
After the mount it should be possible to access also this partition on the other window and you should create a new folder on the local disk, select the files and folders and use copy & paste like in windows to transfer the files.

Hi,

Thank You to let us know the result. I'm glad to know that everything went well for you.

In my opinion you should check the Hard Disk health to make sure the drive isn't failing. Some laptops have diagnostic tests on BIOS or when you press a function key during boot, another option is to use the Disk health tool included on the Parted Magic CD you have.
