I have completed a chkdsk /r (I had done it without and with a /f).

On verifying file data (stage 4 of 5), it says:

the disk does not have enough space to replace bad clusters detected in file 4532 of name \windows\micros~1.net\framew~2\v40~1.303\setupc~1\v45~1.512\netfx_~1.mzz

'the disk does not have enough space to replace bad clusters detected in file 286139 of name \windows\micros~1.net\framew~2\v40~1.303\setupc~1\v45~1.512\netfx_~2.mzz

Get it over and done with.
Format the drive and perform a clean installation of Windows...

Looks like I am running out of hope.

I can get to command prompt but how do I get my data off the computer to an external hard drive?

Sorry, I have limited knowledge...
