    I have a Windows 7 on bootcamp but it crashed.
    I tried serveral recovery programs like Hirens boot CD but it doesn't recognise my keyboard for some reason when i'm at the first menu.

    So I had another idea: Just copy my precious files from my bootcamp partition using my mac operating system.
    Unfortunately, copy pasting didn't do the trick.

    Is there any way to get my files back from Windows using my mac operating sytem? I'm using a Macbook pro from 2011

    Yes it has actually been solved!

    I did the instructions, started Linux Ubuntu from my disk, and copy pasted all the files i needed from my damaged windows 7 to an external hard drive.

    Thank you very much! You saved me a lot of trouble!
