Thank u !
What I would do is to remove the drive and connect it to another computer and copy the files you need to thumb drive. Of course it depends on the pld computer. Some computers use a fixed drive that can not be removed. Please indicate if it a Windows PC or Mac, laptop or desktop, which operating system you were using.

I help people all the time convert to Linux by removing the old drive and replacing it with a drive that has Linux on it. If they like Linux, they keep it and I erase the old drive for use to Linux for the next person.

Feel free to PM me.
