Used this to recover data off of an external hard-drive running Linux as a base operating system. When the mother board died, removed the hard-drive, installed in my computer and installed this software. Worked flawlessly, currently copying all the data off the drive onto my other drive. Thanks.
On Windows 7 64 bit with 1 SSD, 2 SATA drives and USB3 it quietly worked incorrectly. I connected 2 2TB drives (both formatted as Ext3, one empty) using USB3 enclosures, then copied the entire contents of one drive to the other. The "from" drive had 893GB free and the "to" drive started out with 1810GB free. After the copy completed the "to" drive had 1810GB free but less than half the directories existed. I've no idea where the data went to. Sorry but as far as I'm concerned this software is worthless. I'm not prepared to waste more time on it by providing debug info. I achieved my copy by booting up a SystemRescueCd containing Linux and copying the data using that.
Great savior tool!
