I am a windows person. Don't know much about macs.
A friend has a macbook pro - 3+ years old. water spilled on it. Took out hard drive, installed trial of Paragon HFS+ on a win 10 machine, rebooted, connected the hard drive from the mac.
It spun up and I see a directory tree. But does this look right? several folders have 0 bytes / no files in them? bin? cores? dev?
is that normal?
The key thing is getting their data off. In the user folder, then the user name, pictures, I see loads of folders. some have 1 picture, some have no pictures. That sound right? Not sure if they deleted some pictures - does the folder remain?
Just want to know if he lost some files with the water on it. But I'd think it wouldn't spin up / all folders / files would be gone?
Or is it an issue of using a mac drive in a windows machine, even with the Paragon HFS+ app installed?
and what's with the time stamps 12/31/1903? Does the paragon driver have problems reading apple dates?
