@pfw70: Thanks, I removed the $INTDIR step from extraction instructions.

Tip: aside of Universal Extractor the .exe (Linux_Reader-v3.4.exe) can also be extracted with 7Zip, a portable version being availabe on this site, 7-ZipPortable.exe.
Also note that Linux_Reader v3.4 does not have a sub folder $INSTDIR anymore: LinuxReader.exe/LinuxReader64.exe can be found the base folder.

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).
