SafeCP – Free Disk Reader for Windows
SafeCP uses raw disk access to read all the common filesystem types. Available for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8.x, or 10, you can read FAT, NTFS, ReFS, HFS+, APFS, exFAT, EXT, UFS partitions. Both MBR and GPT partitioning schemes are supported. A common use of SafeCP is to recover user profile folders from externally connected disks. Whether the disk is from a Windows, Mac or Linux computer, SafeCP makes it easy to retrieve the files.
Although not made for data recovery, disks with bad sectors or filesystem corruption can benefit from SafeCP’s careful approach to reading filesystems. It’s common for disks with bad sectors to stall Windows Explorer due to automatic drive letter assignment. You can use the easy to access controls to disable automount. Then connect your disk and open it with SafeCP.
Transferring files from a Windows disk is easier since SafeCP does not process file permissions. The disk is opened in read-only mode so that the source is never modified.
SafeCP is free to use for both personal and commercial applications. It is fully supported by your donations. If you like SafeCP, a $5 donation is greatly appreciated.
