backing up files before malware removal

Unread postby Lorenzo37 » February 14th, 2011, 9:12 pm

Hi, i had a quick question. I apologise if this is the wrong forum.
Can i back up my files in safe mode to cdr's or dvr's without the files being corupted in any way or do i have to do it in normal mode? i want to save all my files before attempting to fix my problems here but i can only boot in safe mode due to my viruses.

Thank you,

The Malware Removal room is intended for assistance with malware removal issues only, and requires the posting of a HijackThis log. It is not a room for asking general questions, which could be asked in the General Discussions room:


Backing up your files, whether in Safe or Normal mode, would not corrupt your files.
