If you have a External HD, you could copy & paste your data.
Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

You'll have to delete the data from HD once it's copied externally.

If this fails you'll need to use Acer Recovery disks you made or order from tech support, or we can help you find a Win7 installer for your licensed version so you can clean reinstall with the Product Key off the COA sticker: Reinstalling Windows 7
