You need to boot into the Windows 7 installation DVD or System Repair Disc - Create

If you need an installer for your licensed version it's available in Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 along with other options for rescuiing your files.

Are you trying to paste to external HD from the DVD/REpair CD Recovery console? What is the exact error?

This can be used to copy to a USB stick too right? Connected to a USB 2 port to assure there are drivers for it.

If that's correct, maybe update the Tutorial to include that information? Maybe also how to do the copy/paste. Don't think all users are familiar with the right-click context menu.

recovery of windows mail emails

Thank you very much for this detailed tutorial. My computer crashed and I was really worried that I lost all my data till I came across this forum and I have now recovered almost all my data that I thought was lost for ever! You are a life saver!!!

I have only one question though. I am however not able to find the folders with my emails. I had emails stored there over the last 4 years and some of them are fairly important ones. Would you be able to tell me how to find the folder with the windows mail (or is it windows live mail?) that I had used in windows 7 instead of the outlook express that I had used in my previous computer.

I know that this thread is a few years old and I am not sure you would see this, but if you do, any advice would be most welcome.
Thank you !!

You might want to look over the other preparatory steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which remember everything that must be saved before the reinstall, based on tens of thousands of installs we've helped with (including the one woman we'll never forget who lost her job because she forgot the Quickbooks data in Public Documents!)
