Here's one -> http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/use-ubuntu-live-cd-to-backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/

Note -> I rarely have to use those commands you read there.

Here's a Windows CD if you feel you can't mouse around Ubuntu. But it may not support the USB drives to backup to.
