Ok mate sorry late reply it is morning here and just got up from latte night (work).
Yes I personally prefer using disks for this sort of thing.

Now in that purple screen as in my original pic the drive(s) should be listed near the bottom of the left hand side of the screen where I indicated with that red arrow. Now click on the drive and it should appear at the top where the yellow circle is. Now it has been some time since I last used this but I think you right click on a drive and it will give you the contents just follow my pics to see the sequence of doing it. The pics will give you an idea of what will be shown but maybe slightly different in colours etc.
Now there will be some files it will not open but you can still save them (can delete them after if not needed if useless) The net can be accessed through Firefox for you to download Seatools or any testing programs. However you may need to save those to a separate stick - I have never used it that way but have tried it. My use was really for retrieving data and opening "dead" drives.
You should be able to run drive testing gear though from the stick if loaded onto that.

NB follow the pics by the numbers on them as the pics are sometimes downloaded out of sequence. I will add the original now to save you digging back to it.

Any that are important to you such as documents, pics, spreadsheets etc Now there files that the Ubuntu will not open but may contain stuff you want if it were me I would just save Documents in total to an external or other internal drive.
When replaced onto a new drive or clean install from the external / internal drive you copy them to - you open them with whatever programs they are created with. Stuff you do not want you can delete. Time consuming - yes but it saves missing data you need or would like to keep.
