My system is a desktop Acer Aspire running home Vista. It has a 350G Hitachi SATA hard disk
which has 2 partitions. I cannot boot up from the hard disk.
The hardware of the system only has input for a SATA hard disk.
I booted the system using UBCD 4.11 but stops at the point where I need to select a shell.
However if I go to the expert mode and run the dos window I can see the files and directories on the damaged harddisk's 2nd partition
I can only copy files using the copy command to a USB disk. But doing that its going to be a tedious process.
Following problems need to addressed
1) I would like to copy the entire directories
2) Copy directories which have a space in it eg " My Documents"
Is there some other way that I could salvage out the data from the damaged hard disk?
The constraint being that I only attach one 3.5" hard disk to the motherboard of the system and another 2.5" hard disk on a USB port.
Any pointers to a successful resolve would be appreciated.
