I am a Linux newbie, using Ubuntu. My win Xp computer crashed and I need the files on it (Pictures and documents). Can I use the Live Ubuntu cd (Dapper Drake) to access the files? I believe they are in FAT. If not what else can I do?
.I finally pulled the hard drive and installed it as a slave on another computer and retrieved my files that way.
It was a single boot install and I could not repair the install as it was in a BSOD loop and it would'nt even boot into safe mode.
My thanks to all who replied.
