I have a NTFS hard drive, which should come with some Windows programs for backups on it. When I mount it, the drive is empty, but 250 Mb is used. I wanted to copy these programs before formatting the drive. Do I need a Windows system to be able to do this? Will I not accidentally overwrite them if I start copying files?
I don't like questions without answers, so add this as an answer. The folder with the software gets mounted on one of my internal hard drive partitions, and shows up among the other files on this partition. I think it is a very strange, but maybe it will happen to someone else too.
