Read Mac-formatted Hard disks in Windows with HFSExplorer

HSFExplorer is a freeware application which can read Mac-formatted hard disks in Windows. It can read the file systems HFS (Mac OS Standard), HFS+ (Mac OS Extended) and HFSX (Mac OS Extended with case sensitive file names). HFSExplorer allows you to browse your Mac hard drives with a graphical file system browser, extract files or view detailed information about the volume and create disk images from the volume.


This application is mainly written in Java, so you will need the Java Run time files to make it work. HFSExplorer can also read most .dmg disk images created on a Mac, including zlib / bzip2 compressed images and AES-128 encrypted images. It supports the partition schemes Master Boot Record, GUID Partition Table and Apple Partition Map natively.
