Well, based on your explanation I can see two possibilities..

1: Slave your hhd to another system and pull those files over that way (the other system may have to take ownership) or;

2: network your system to another with a simple LAN and move them that way..

Either which case, just reverse the procedure once your system is back up and running!!
