    I have an NTFS drive that has recently become corrupted (Thanks a lot Windows 7). The drive isn't damaged or anything like that, it is just a corrupt file system.

    I was wondering if anyone can recommend some good drive recovery software for Mac that supports NTFS partitions. I really need to get the data off before I reformat the drive in HFS+.

    I appreciate any suggestions....Thanks

    You might want to give SpinRite a shot.

    I have it and it works well.

    Thanks for all your quick replies. I'm struggling to find if Data Rescue II for Mac supports NTFS drivers, can anyone find this information?

    Not sure on these.

    However, SpinRite will work with all drive formats. Just requires a PC to use which I assume that you have by the way you wrote your original message.
