How To Install Dskprobe.exe Windows 7. Please Help.


DiskProbe is a GUI tool that allows you to edit sectors of drives on computers with Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 and it requires administrative privileges before it can be used. If you are using a limited account, you cannot use this. The tool allows you to directly edit, save, and copy data on a physical hard drive that’s no longer accessible in any other way.

If you want to use this tool on your computer, here’s a way. First, download Windows XP Service Pack 2 Support Tools then unpack or extract the contents of the EXE file “WindowsXPKB838079SupportToolsENU.exe” on a folder.

Remember: this tool runs only on Microsoft Windows XP and if you are using a different operating system, you might be prompted with this message if you try to run it instead of extracting it:

You can use 7-Zip to unpack the file. After unpacking the files, click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, and then “Command Prompt”. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “expand [path of] [path of destination] -F:DSK*” then hit Enter. For example:


Replace “[path of]” with the correct path of the “” file and “[path of destination]” with the path of the folder where you want to place the file. Next, right-click “dskprobe.exe” and select “Run as administrator”. You should see something like this after:
