How to rescue files from a computer that can't boot into Windows
If Windows is not bootable, how can files be saved before performing a system recovery?
One way uses a USB thumb drive with a live copy of Linux. Please note that Toshiba does not maintain these links; their targets could be changed or removed at any time. Toshiba does not officially endorse these utilities. Use them at your own risk.
1. Prepare a thumb drive formatted in FAT32. It doesn't need to be large. 256 MB should suffice.
