DiskInternals is a nifty little application that allows users to do a number of things. DiskInternals can be quite the life saver in some situations where not having it would cause a lot of headaches. What DiskInternals specializes in exactly, is reading entire drives written in Linux or Apple formats. Usually people tend to stick with a platform across all their devices, such as all Apple or all Windows, but sometimes they find themselves having to deal with both. When this happens, it’s a good idea to have DiskInternals on standby.

Once you open the application, you will be greeted by a window that displays valuable information such as all the available partitions on that particular machine. From here you can also do a bit of managing as it will tell you what file types are hogging most of your internal storage, for each partition. There are previews for some file types like pictures, which give you an idea of what that file is.

Files can be obtained through DiskInternals but they can’t be simply copied over to your computer. If you want a file found on a specific drive, you can use the recovery tool to “recover” the file. This will open a drag and drop window where you can place the files you are interested in extracted. The application also comes with the neat function of creating disk images. The disk image formats understood by the program are .vhd, .vmdk, .vhdx, .vdi, .vds, .img,  and .dsk.

That being said, here’s a list of the formats you can expect DiskInternals to be able to read and manage for you from the Linux and Apple platforms:

  • ReFS;
  • UFS2;
  • HFS+;
  • FAT;
  • exFAT;
  • Ext2;
  • Ext3;
  • Ext4;
  • ReiserFS;
  • Reiser4;
  • HFS.
