Tested with Mac-formatted HFS+ drive today and this worked beautifully. Very easy and fast.

@Midas: I agree. I was the one who added the 64-bit download link before Checker removed it.

@checker: after my experience with the largely illiterate (*ducks*) masses of the Net, I believe a link is more eloquent and straightforward than a note. For one, it's part of the the database structure, while a note is easy to overlook. I motion for the link to be reinstated.

This program saved me when I had a Win7 VMware installation go corrupt on me. Fantastic.

@Midas: That's why I added "A 64-bit version is available (within the folder)." at the description ;)

@checker: without the 64-bit link, unattentive newcomers might assume the program is 32-bit only...


Checker 2015-08-21 18:13

@AdrianK_IT: Thanks ... database entry corrected ;)

There does not seem to be a need to provide separate 32-bit and 64-bit download links; they appear to point to the same file (which contains both versions, when extracted/installed).

Direct access to disks always requires administrative rights in Windows...

Seems to need admin rights, so no good for looking at a USB linux install from Windows on a public computer...

Program seems to run fine but gives a "need admin rights" type error message when attempting to search for linux partitions.
