    hi all. I have a situation. I sold my macbook pro which had windows 7 with bootcamp. I need to extract the files from it. The problem I have now is I can't figure how to mount the windows drive onto my regular windows 7 PC through the USB Connector.

    The computer see's the drive but asks me to format before I use which I have not.

    I've installed Paragon HFS+ but that does not work as well. I've also HFS Explorer which see's the drive and opens the mac mac partition with application names etc.

    Can someone help

    I did the following and recovered it.
    Installed MacOSX on another hard drive
    Installed TestDisk
    Fixed the Partition of Bootcamp
    Copy the files to the Mac desktop

    TestDisk is the best utility found. its command line and very easy to understand.
