XP Pro SP3 BSOD with a unmountable_boot_volume error. In googling the problem, it says to boot into the recovery console and run chkdsk /p and when that is done, run fixboot.
So I run chkdsk /p and at 50% it says The volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems. it sounds like the drive is now toast.
But is there any tools that might allow me to save some files (documents, photos, music, etc)? Like a linux distro and which one would be the best?
I personally wouldn't worry about it too much but the laptop belongs to my daughter and she really wants some of those files.
any help would be appreciated!
