mac formatted disk on windows testdisk

#1 Post by elsie »

I am trying to recover a external hard drive that was formatted on an imac. I am running testdisk on my windows machine. Will this work or will windows not recognise the drive regardless of what program i run?

testdisk recognition doesn't depend on filesystem used to launch it.
