    Today I downloaded your trial version for windows.

    Let me explain it a bit:

    An extended NTFS partition under XP Sp3 crashed recently.
    (content: + 10000 jpg files and more)

    After that, the the other partitions went down. So I tried what I had.
    First of all Acronis True Imaging. But alas, in this case not helpfull.

    -Gparted (Linux) sees the partition, recognises its capacity, no content.
    -SFBootable sees the partition, recognises it, no content.
    -Hiren Boot recognises the existence of a partition, no content
    -LiveCD (WinPE) recoghnises the partition existence, no content

    So it seems an MBR-problem, combined with something else.
    Anyway, a lost parition format. I replaced the hard disk, and kept it apart for later testing.

    As far as I see it, in your manuals, in MAC OS
    Disk Drill is using
    Fuse (;
    and Fuse is not for windows.

    So if I want to follow the same road, I first have to make a clone (or sector-image bit by bit) of the partition.
    Then i should clone that partition virtually on another disk. And that should be the moment where Disk Drill Pro comes in.
    So after all, my trial version will not work at all, or only at the very beginning, just after making a succesful clone (or disk image).
    Just to see if there is any chance tor recover a thing.

    Is that correct?
    In that case I better start with other software: EaseUS, Paragon, and so on …
    Which have proven, in the past, to do their work.


    I’m not quite sure why exactly you cannot use Disk Drill Basic on Mac to see if your data is recoverable, or just go on and use Disk Drill for Windows, which is currently free and employs most of the same core recovery algorithms with the Mac edition. Is there anything specific that prevents you from connecting your Windows drive and running a recovery to see what can be done to undelete those partitions?
