You'll need something that can read Linux formatted partitions - likely ext2/3/4

You can get Paragon ExtFS or you could try installing a version of Linux in VirtualBox as a VM and using that to access the drive

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post
