saving my system
I have a problem, with windows 98
Have lost my OS, tried to repair and won't
I tried to upgrade to me, and after 15+ hours the programing tells me there are still drive errors and will not continue
I NEED to save the files. Am I screwed or how can I fix the drive errors without losing my files, when I cannot even get into the OS
HELP ME PLEASE !!!

Maybe try Knoppix, runs off of the cdrom, boot to that search the disc for the files and save them to floppy's? Otherwise put a another hard drive in laod up the os and then go into the origianal and try to find the files.STILL CRUNCHING SETI FOR THE USA
SETI, only SETI, always SETI!!!!

I put the HDD into another pc, as slave, and most of the files were missing, that is another factor in my dilema.
Any other ideas

Try this utility:
It's freeware and provided the HW is good and data is not completely corrupt, you should get at least some of the files back. It runs within Windows and you'll need space on another drive to copy the files into.
