Live software that recovers data when Operating System crashes?

Can you tell me how to recover data from hard disk and backup it in another storage in case the operating system will not load or crashes?

"I have had some luck in the past using System Rescue CD - It is basically a live Linux disk with PhotoRec recovery software.

That being said, I sometimes have problems and by far, my favourite way of file recovery (if a disk is still readable) is to just get out the CD, put it in a working Windows computer and use either Recuva for the light / accidental deletion job, or R-Studio for anything half serious as I have not seen anything better."

"Depends on your OS. for windows acronis trueimage (there's no free version), macrium reflect (there's a free version) or any number of free imaging tools will work.

With linux bubackup might be worth looking at, or file level backups to tarballs"
