+Extract is freeware that rips FTA recordings from a Sky+ hard disk. It is written by Neil Balloch, who has kindly allowed Copy+ to make his software available and to provide forum space for further discussion.
NB: To use +Extract the hard disk must be removed from the Sky+/Sky HD box and connected to your PC using a direct connection or a USB adapter.
+Extract or +Extract Plus?
You can choose either the free +Extract or the more feature laden +Extract Plus, which requires you to pay for a licence (details on how to do this are provided upon installing the application). +Extract Plus includes, amongst other things, Copy+ image support and is fully compatible with Windows 7 (x86 and x64).
If you wish development of the free version of +Extract to continue then please send a donation to Neil via the button above, or the one provided from within the software.
