I can't find my local drive files for backup

Hi, i need to backup my files without using the os, so i used the usb booting method. I tried to access my files by launching notepad through command prompt, used the 'Save As' option to browse my files so that i can just copy and paste them to another usb. Unfortunately, i can't find my files, or even the Local Disk/Drive itself, it only shows 3 drives, 1) IRMCCSAX6 (C:)- Which at first I assumed is my local disk C, but my files aren't there, 2)CD Drive (D:) which i assume is for the CD/DVD ROM and 3)Boot (X:) which is the bootable usb that contains the windows installer. I Browsed all of them hoping to find my user profile folder, still no chance.

Here are some screenshots:

I kindly need your advice. Thank you!

the c drive shown is the USB stick

D is the DVD drive and X is the windows repair drive

if you don't want to use the OS to look for and back up files then - Download and make a linx USB boot from that - mount the HArd drive and browse for you files
