Assuming that the partitions them selves are ok, there are a few easy ways.
Examples:
- Boot using a live cd or dvd then mount the disk, scp your data to another machine on the network or cp to another disk
- Take the disk out of the machine, install it in another machine, boot and mount the disk, copy files

And so on.

Cheers,

Evo2.

Boot with a live cd and check the status.
