There is System Restore. You need to go to control panel, then administrative, then system restore. Maybe this can help you. Always save your important documents on a diskette. This is the safest way to store information.

Yes buddy, there are many ways to save and recover your data. First you can take out the bad hard drive and attach it in the another computer as a slave and then copy your files from the bad hard drive to the one it is connected to. If that hard disk is that bad that it will not be accesed then the second way is to run a repair installation and that also has some different ways to do as we'll have to check what type of installation would be done to recover your data. Secondly you can download and install a software call "Tuneup Utility" to recover even deleted files as well. best of luck.

First of all i can hardly understand you. Ok there is an external hard drive that you can buy. All you do is plug it into the computer and press a button. Then you hard drive is backed up.
