Mistake

Hekp!! - Firts, PC with XP got hit with blue screen and tried rebooting. It ran chckdsk to fix xp and booted. But after attempting to retrieve files, it crashed with blue screen. I kept rebooting with chkdsk for 5 times with same results- slow to retrieve files & crashing; now can't get past chkdsk stage 1 of 3 (before it got stuck on stage 2 of 3 with file 828 unreadable).
I need to recover a folder with many business files- after that I can hit this old pc with sledge hammer. HELP!!

Your HDD is failing.
You can make an Ubuntu Live CD and boot off of that and browse the C: drive, you can copy any personal files off of the C: drive and save them to a USB Flash drive.
Or you can remove the HDD from the computer and attach it internally to a desktop computer or via a USB Adapter or put the HDD in a USB Enclosure or Dock, then copy your personal files from that HDD.

The issue here is with bad boot files but should be able to read other files on that bad HHD, correct? Let me try that now and see how it goes. Thank you!!

Can someone help me please... I have a HDD with bad boot sectors and won't boot window XP. I took drive out and put it on an external USB enclosure. My 2nd PC with win10 sees the drive as "L:" but when I double click on it I get this error message:

l:\is not accessible
Access is denied

What do I need to do to be able to get to this drive and retrieve important files & pictures off of it?
Thank you
Lou

If you put the drive in a usb enclosure and used it while booting from the aforementioned ubuntu live disk, you should not have any issue with permissions. Basically windows sees that it's windows and uses appropriate permissions. Linux doesn't much care about that.
