My issue bears resemblance to these 2:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/for...installed-but-without-losing-data-468515.html

http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/transfer-files-using-command-prompt-468449.html

The first one is similar because my command prompt is saying my default drive is X: and I can not access anything on C:

The second one has a general outline for how to access the data, but the person who posted that couldn't do it, and I'm not sure if I'm doing it right...

How do I do this?: It doesn't seem to work for me...

xcopy "%userprofile%" "f:\userfiles" /i /s /y

Re: Trying to extract data from hard drive using command prompt

Why do you want to copy data from the command prompt? If you can't boot your computer use an Ubuntu Live CD and copy the files to a USB Flash Drive.
