    I have a Dell Dimension 3000. It will start bootup and get to the loadindg windows XP splash screen then I get a blue screen. What I would like to do is recover some documents and pictures then do a complete restore back to factor. I have tried using a USB HDD Case, and a USB IDE to USB Converter. In both cases the HDD is recognized. but in both case's when I try to access the files I get this message "F:\ is not accessible. The File directory is corrupted and unreadable". Anybody know of a safe way to get at the files I need?
