Hi, welcome to justanswer.com! My name is Mike.I am going over your question and I will be with you shortly.
So you are sure this drive was formatted for Windows as NTSF?
I dont understand the question?
But I have a Mac
I got a request for extra help?
How exactly do you plan to help me?
You mentioned you downloaded Paragon NTSF why did you do that if you did not know what format the drive is? I assumed you knew it was NTSF. Where does the drive come from?
It has a Microsoft Reserved partition which seems to mean it is from Windows but the main partition seems corrupted. We can try to use the Paragon software to repair it
NTSF is a Windows format in case I wasn't clear
I can connect by remote and diagnose this issue. Or I can try to give you instructions. Let me know
Do you still need help with this you never replied?
