I am trying to analyse image of a HDD. X-ways complains there are overlapping partitions, then shows strange file names and directory names on one of the partitions.

But Axiom processess it flawlessly and FTK imager mounts it perfectly.

What is the problem X-ways according to you?

It's just X-Ways showing you potentially more data.

In their own words "If partitions overlap, for example because one previously existing partition was partially overwritten by another partition, then a note is now displayed in the Messages window (only if you have the program number partitions by disk location). This note should make unsuspecting users aware of the possible consequences, for example make them realize that potential errors when parsing the file system in the overwritten partition might be normal and not a reason to ask for assistance."

Thanks for clarification. I have checked, X-ways shows an extra partition as you said.
