We have an AlienWare/Dell desktop with an 512 GB PCIe that will not boot up. It attempts to start the "Automatic Repair" process but we are not sure if that will delete all of our files. Does anyone know if the Automatic repair process will delete all of our files as part of that process? More specificlly we need to recover two iPhone backups stored in the User/App Data/Roaming/Apple Computer/MobileSync/Backup directory.
We also were able to remove the PCIe drive and attach it to our Tableau PCIe Write Blocker. That allowed us to view the drive via Windows Explorer but the damn App Data directory was locked up tight via Windows 10 permissions.
This is getting very frustrating. I am thinking about letting Windows run Automatic Repair and then manually accessing the iPhone backup files we need and then just copying it out 'live'.
Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you,
