    From...Boot Camp? There's no really good way, but I think there's a piece of software called MacDrive that can make Windows understand HFS+ partitions. It's not free though.

    It is MacDrive. Be careful with it though, back up often. Version 6.x was prone to corrupting the HFS+ drive. I reported the error, they could recreate it, and it was never fixed in the 6.x patches.

    I haven't tried version 7, they may have fixed the problem, though it was not mentioned in any release notes that I could find.

    I have tried both versions 6 & 7 and have had no problems with it.
