I found this link from a search, as it appeared exactly what I needed to recover documents and pictures from my old unbootable hard drive.

I followed the instructions precisely, created a Peppermint 5, 32 bit image using Rufus on a new formatted USB stick.

Peppermint 5 opened up fine, I dragged and dropped the document - picture - download....etc.. icons to the adjacent window of my USB external hard drive.

I had no error codes and it all appeared to work fine....However!

In Peppermint the Home folder icons are empty, they do not have any files in them.

On the bad lap top with the external drive attached I am able to see the previously backed up files in an existing folder on the screen. So that appears to work well.

So it seems Peppermint does not view my files.

Is it likely to be a problem with my download?

Or, are my document files, somewhere else than where Peppermint 5 is trying to find them?

cheers.
