A mates lappy refuses to boot up - can I help as he has all his pictures on it?
Looks like the boot area is corrupted - don't know how, he swears he hasn't downloaded anything nasty. Yeah, right! I'll reformat and install again.

OK, take out the HDD, do an image backup to his USB drive, test restore to a fresh partition on my machine. Notice that he's a "random storer" - the pictures are all over the place. Decide that is his problem, not mine - I'll give him the backup and he can spend a good chunk of his time finding them, not me.
Reload from machine recovery disks, upgrade to Win10, done.
Install AOMEI and write up instructions to access his files in the backup (AOMEI allows you to mount images as logical, read only disks, so this isn't difficult).

Only ... Windows won't let him access the files because he's logged in as user "Tim", and the files are owned by ... user "Tim". D'Oh! | :doh:
And it's read only - for good reason - so he can't change the access permissions.

So now I have to repartition his USB drive, and re-restore the partition back to that so he can acquire permissions to access his own files...

Why do we make things to complicated for ourselves? Sigh | :sigh:
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
