    It's advertised as data safe. I haven't used it personally, but from what I have heard if you follow the directions exactly, you shouldn't have any issues.

    I make sure to reboot for every op
    and don't use chkdsk there is reg edit to stop this chk of drive
    some users let ck dsk run I don't it has erased stuff on resized partitions
