Acronis saved me
This morning PC rebooted partway through Windows boot. I was able to boot with Acronis CD (linux os btw) and back up the hard drive. Every so often an error message came up saying bad disk sector. I hit ignore. Put a new hard drive in the PC and restored from last week's backup. From today's backup I copied the outlook PST file in the windows directory to get email for the week between the good backup and now (took awhile to figure out where this was).
I also copied several other files I had created as well.
Just remember it could happen to you. So have a backup plan. With cost of disks these days you can't afford not to.
