I have an old Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 1AI laptop which has been getting slow to boot over time. Issue has occured where after a 10 minute startup into Vista, it freezes (including action bar clock). Cannot click/hotkey/open anything even after leaving for an hour.
Suspcicion is a failing hard drive, which is fine, but can I extract all the harddrive data like pictures and videos onto either another laptop or external HD if I can't use any functions? Can this be done in "safe mode" or something similar?
Any assistance much appreciated. Many thanks Russell
