How can you access a file when your Windows is corrupted? I have knowledge of the filename, not the storage path.

You can use a Live Linux installation. Slax is the perfect example. Go to the main website and download the version for USB flash drives. Follow the procedure in the README file located in the archive, then boot the computer from the USB drive. Once you are in desktop mode, use the built-in search tools to look for your files. It's the easiest way to recover data on a corrupted Windows installation.
