Windows 7: Can I transfer my folders in safe mode ?

Can I transfer my folders in safe mode ?

My hard drive is about to fail according to Dell . They are sending me a replacement and do a fresh install.
So I hope to save some documents and pictures to an external hard drive. Can I do this in safe mode ?
Would it be `safe` to send them from a normal boot ?,
if it could even do that at this point.

You can do that in safe mode but normal mode should work too.

When I right click to send to , I have no choice for the external drive.

You have to either include your external drive into the sendto folder or do a simple copy/paste.
