    Hello all. I have an external drive that is still formatted for OSX journaled and I need to read it on my XP system. I used macdrive in the past but the demo expired and it will not let me try it again. Is there any free software out there that will let me do this? I do not want to pay $50 for software I will only use once. Thanks!

    A quick Google search seems to show that there is no free alternative :(

    Is there anything that costs less than $50? USF Explorer does not see my drive.

    Hey Zimmy. Macdrive is the software I am talking about in the OP. It costs $50 after the trial period so I am looking for something else cause the trial won't install on my puter :(
