Windows 10 file recovery

I have some very basic questions which I didn't find clear solutions to in the tutorials or on the boards. The closest was a youtube, but that was based on UBCD4WIN.
My windows 10 installation is in a BSOD boot loop due to "unmountable boot volume" and I can't repair it with a windows boot cd, neither do I have a recent system image. Also the windows recovery environment isn't giving access to the SSD to use the notepad file explorer option.
I'm able to boot UBCD 8.5.3, but I can't see which options to use. I have 2 queries:
- how do I use UBCD to copy data files from the SSD to an external media?
- are there any tools which can help with the boot problem?

Any assistance would be much appreciated!

You can try booting to PartedMagic and seeing if you can access the files and copy to a USB drive. (You may have to have the USB drive inserted while booting.)

I would boot to a PE environment or Linux Live CD/DVD/USB and copy over the files that way, if I have access to them.

The Windows 10 Forum may be a better place to get help -->

Good luck
