Are Apple's HFS+ drivers any good?

    After a few mishaps, I'm very paranoid about filesystems. If I can use a Mac to perform file operations on HFS volumes (and Windows on NTFS) I would, rather than MacDrive or Paragon/alternatives.

    So basically my question is, are Apple's HFS+ drivers that are installed as part of Boot Camp, good? Any problems with data integrity with them?

    Apple's drivers only allow for read access from an HFS formatted partition. You'd still need 3rd-party software for writes.

    Is there something preventing you from using exFAT to allow for read and write support from bother operating systems?

    I don't find Apple HFS drivers good at all.

    I had to install MacDrive to enjoy full support of HFS+ and delete both Apple services from CMD

    in CMD : sc delete applemnt | sc delete applehfs ( services deletion )
