I have a Windows Vista laptop that won't start up. Whenever this happens, and I run the start repair, I've never had the fortune to have startup repair work. I've also never had System Restore work in these circumstances - ever. It always says that there are no restore points.
Is there a method by which I can plug the drive into a USB adapter on another PC, and manually copy the files from a repair folder in windows, or whatever. I'd rather avoid factory reinstall if I can.
