My pc will not boot and originally it was giving error message of "virtual mermory low..." I booted up with a boot disk of " ubuntu " and manged to delete some files on the nearly full hard drive, but that did not fix the fault. So I have made a copy of the hard drive using "HD clone" and an external hard drive but when I connect this external drive to another pc I cannot find the folder " My Pictures " nor "My documents" Any suggestions? I really wanted to save the photos and my outlook folders, before I do a full recovery to try and get my pc running again.
My pc is a hp pavilion media centre on XP, I have tried using an xp cd to repair it but it still hangs just before the welcome screen. I have tried doing a recovery using the recovery disk but during recovery after 74% I get an error message that the lsass.exe file cannot be recovered. I am now quite willing to do a full recovery as long as I can first save my photos & outlook folders hence I was hoping that the cloned copy of my hard drive on the external hard drive would allow me to recove these. Any suggestions as to how I can recover the photos & emails off the hard drive/ external cloned hard drive.
