    OP wants to know this:

    Backup Windows 8 from Live Ubuntu usb
    Please stick to one issue a thread and read posts in the thread. Gets confusing otherwise. OP can not access the Windows files. Thats's what their asking for help with. Already advised to start new thread for boot issue. Thanks.

    @VMC: Reply to the booting issue on that thread rather than here. This one is about backing up and, I repeat, dealing with two support issues on one thread can become confusing (which is why OP has started another thread to deal with the other issue). The title of this thread has nothing to do with booting issues so apart from confusing, future travellers will not find any helpful information given about it here, but they will on the other thread with the appropriate thread title. Thanks.
