    Hey Guys I have a few questions. I have searched and have seen some info about it but have not found a definitive answer about it. I have an 8GB Flash Drive and I have some files I need to back up and get over to my PC. So I have read OSX 10+ is able to READ HTFS but Not able to WRITE unless you use a third party program. I have not been able to figure it out. My other question is, does anyone know a way if I partition the Flash Drive to a MAC Journaled Ext and be able to have my VISTA PC to read it. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I would appreciate it a ton, have invested many hours tonight trying to figure this out.

    Thanks for Everyones Time!

    Well, I'd just format it as FAT32, so both Windows and OSX can read and write. You're limited to 4GB per file, though.

    Is there any reason you can't just copy the files via the network?
