Question [Q] How do I recover data from boot animation looping N7?

Hello, I was given a friend's N7 to repair. He wants data to be saved but the device is stuck in the KitKat boot animation. I can't find any way to get to the user files on the device. If I go into recovery mode, I get the message "no command" so I'm unsure what to do at this point.

If the data is not recoverable, how can I reset it back to factory if I'm getting this "no command" error as well?

Thanks for any help

If the bootloader is unlocked then you could try dirty flashing a stock ROM to try and get it to boot the other thing you could try would be to go into fastboot mode and try fastboot pull *insert file path of data* not sure if that would work though if neither of them works and you just want to wipe and reset then download wugfresh NRT and use the unroot and back to stock option tick soft bricked
