"Non-working software!"

January 24, 2014  |  By exemplar77

 |  Version: DiskInternals Linux Reader 1.6.3.0

Pros

Free download.

Cons

Everything about this software didn't work right. First, I had to download it 3 times to get a decent copy that would actually install correctly. It locked up several times on the first install, then started repeating the issue on the second install.

After that, it would not connect to a Linux file system drive automatically. So I tried generating an index, which took HOURS to do. After generating the index, it wouldn't (or couldn't) display the information! I tried several times on 2 different drives. Exasperated after fighting this software for about 2 weeks!

Summary

Just junk. Giving it 1/2 star is being generous.

"Came to the rescue, made the IT guys look stupid"

February 10, 2013  |  By vaughan86

 |  Version: DiskInternals Linux Reader 1.6.3.0

Pros

Allowed me to easily extract all data from a broken network drive.
You can see all data on the drive just like you would in Windows.

Cons

None for me

Summary

Our 2Tb WD MyBook Live network drive just stopped working one day. It could not be accessed by any system. After being told by WD it would need to be replaced, we yank the HDD out of the enclosure and had our techiest friend at my partner's work see if he could access the drive. Like, this guy has built computer clusters. He said nothing could be done.
I then took it to the IT manager at my work. He tried various things for several days using a linux system, and said his only hope would be to copy and image of the whole disk onto another, or it might wreck it even further. This kept crashing, and in the end he gave up.
I then took it home, found this simple freeware, downloaded it and bingo, I could see everything on the drive and copy it as simply as you would from any USB stick. I can't believe I was able to salvage my 2Tb worth of data.
I am not at all a computer person, all I did was take the SATA cable off the back of my DVD drive and plug it into the broken HDD, and download this program. So happy!
I can't promise it will work on everything but for a bricked MyBook Live it was a godsend.
