Running Knoppix 7 cd to rescue data on a ssd with issues.

Hi I have dabbled with Linux a few times over the years but now have a Win 7 desktop PC that will not boot from SSD C: disk. how do I use my copy of Knoppix 7 to recover the data on the drive to another HDD. I can see drive but not do anything with it.I note that the C drive seems to be mounted. Advice would be appreciated.

If the drive is mounted, you can run"
$ rsync -av '/mount/point/Documents and Settings/*' '/recover/mount/point/Documents and Settings/'
But use the actual mount points. I just used examples.
