Login to recovery mode like you do with normal logon, it's just that you are not running your normal system but a boot disk of sorts.

It should auto map your partitions and you are dropped into rescue/recovery root, run this to change to system root chroot /mnt/sysimage

From there you can run the copy command to a share or location

consult this blog for more details.
