    I really hope someone can help.
    My PC kept restarting every time i put a CD in the drive so after this going on for a while i thought i would do a reinstall/repair. I got 34 mins into it and it restarted, and kept doing the same every time, so i unplugged everything inside and tried again.. still the same. Now it wont even give me the reinstall repair option. I can either go into recovery console or install a fresh copy.
    My man=in stuff is backed up, it's just my Microsoft outlook that i dont want to lose.
    Does anyone know how i can retrieve it as i haven't formatted the drive so the info is still there somewhere. I don't know does but is there a way of copying using dos.
    I look forward to some expert help.
    Thank you in advance
