How To Backup Windows 7 Computer Files (Useful Way)
This technique is useful if you have a problem computer, and you have no idea how to fix the problem. You have files that you need from the problem computer, but nothing you tried to fix the problem works. Problems could include blue screen of death or any boot error based on the memory or software. Windows Recovery repair does not fix the problem, but you need those files.

What you will need:
A second computer
Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool
A USB Flash Drive or DVD-/+R
A USB Flash Drive as a Storage Backup Drive to hold your backup files

1) You should know the Windows Operating System Type of the PROBLEM Computer

2) Download the Windows 7 ISO Set-up File

Official Windows 7 Download:

3) Download and install the Windows DVD/USB Download Tool

4)Set-up and create the bootable Windows 7 USB Device or DVD+R/-R

5)Eject the finished bootable Windows 7 USB Device or DVD+R/-R and bring it to the problem computer

6)Boot the Problem Computer, Press F10 or F12 or F2 to get to the boot menu and select the Removable USB Device to boot into

7)Windows 7 setup should load, and you should proceed until you can click Repair problems. Click next, close any errors, and select command prompt. In the command prompt, type in notepad.exe.

8)Notepad opens. Now, click file open. You have access to all your files, and now, you can copy and paste any files that you might need.

  3. MicrowaveSam:::ok this is what confuses me,why do you need to download a windows 7 iso??? cant you just copy the whole operating system to the usb?? is it because your installing windows 7 iso to another computer??? what if i just want to do a clean install of windows7 please reply…what do i need to do??? do i need back up drivers,and os?/

  4. Hi,
    The link for the for "Download the Windows 7 ISO Set-up File" is not active. Where else can you get this file?

  5. Thanks bro I got black screen because I did not install UxTheme.dll and the task manager can't be opened because there is no UxTheme.dll

  6. Hi Sam, terrific video so thanks. Question: How did you create those organizer-folders to set as your backdrop on your desktop? Is it a tweak or a program which you used it to create it with?

  7. can it also work on pc's with lost or corrupted windir files and windll files? because it won't let me create a system image because the dialog said 'cannot find windir' or something like that.

  8. Can I use the 64 bit media as a method to clean install over 32 bit so that i can upgrade (I understand that a clean install will be needed and therefore all my files will be erased)

  9. I was hoping your video would help solve my problem. Because I am able to get into command prompt I did not create an iso file, but went straight to notepad and attempted to copy important files before I try a factory restore. The problem is my computer won't copy and past anything into my external HDD. Little wheel just keeps spinning and my computer is frozen. Any suggestions?

  10. Another simple way is to use "Ultimate Boot CD". You can burn the iso which is about 582MB to cd or make a bootable pen drive by using Universal-USB-Installer.
