There is Ubuntu and Unix/Linux site but is there special 'stack' site for Mac and Windows?

For context, the question I am looking to ask: I accidentally connected a Windows NTFS formatted HDD to a Mac. And the Mac (may be) quick-formatted it. I think that the information is there, but the FAT table is gone. How I can recover the information.

Super User is our general software/hardware site. It handles Windows, Mac, as well as Unix and Linux.

Ask Different is our Apple site, in the same vein as Unix & Linux and Ask Ubuntu are for theirs. We do not have an explicit Windows site in the same fashion, mostly because it is generally covered by Super User still.

  • as a note for followers, "askdifferent" appears to be equal to apple.stackexchange.com these days.

  • i don't understand how there is an apple stackexchange but not windows one when there is at least 2-3x more users of windows. and there is easily 10x more windows users than ubuntu. Mar 25, 2023 at 0:20

    It primarily boils down to, not enough people wanted to make one. The creation of sites was developed through community pushing prospects through Area 51. Enough people in Unix & Linux, Ubuntu, and Apple pushed together to create sites for their needs because they felt the need. Windows apparently never bound together for that and were satisfied just sitting on Super User.

For Windows Phone, embedded Compact I recommend you using https://windowsphone.stackexchange.com/ (I don't know about Windows on Snapdragon 835 and 850).

For Windows Home, Pro, S, Enterprise and Server, http://superuser.com/ is the way to go and the Microsoft forums of course.
