Pulling A Hikvision HDD And Recovering Video?

We have a client with a Hik system that needs some footage from an unknown time frame. Their #1 goal is maintaining the footage.

My thought is swap the HDD with another HDD to preserve the data.

Is there anyway to pull the data off the HDD from a PC using their software or is the HDD not formatted for Windows?
