I am a student at Art Institute of Las Vegas, I have recently tried your product (recommended by an Instructor) and was very impressed! Your software recovered a drive that I thought was gone forever. I am interested in your product at the academic level as the school uses Macs and I have PC at home. Jeremy Goodell
MacDrive was so unlike downloadable trials of software that I've used in the past because it actually worked. It did what it said it would do with almost zero input from me, other than plugging in my drive and activating the software trial.Charles
Today I had a catastrophic hard disk failure and my Mac would no longer boot. After several attempts to recover my data using Mac applications I decided that my last ditch effort would be to remove the drive and try to read it on my Windows machine. I tried MacDrive and the disk mounted successfully! I was able to back up my important work and all my files!Robert Megone
With MacDrive, we can share data, no matter what kind of computer we have. When we first found out that our Director of Photography wanted to use a Mac, we were worried, because we're very committed to PC's because of our global business, but MacDrive solved all our problems.
