    My W10 bootcamp volume won't detect my external FW800 RAID and daisy chained drives. This worked in the past. I installed bootcamp and can see the HFS read only driver in the sys32 folder but it must not be working. In the system tray it lists the devices but not their partitions. Any thoughts?

    So after some sleuthing it appears any version of W10 following the anniversary edition breaks this functionality. Neither Windows nor Apple will address it. If I find a good work around I will report back :(

    I use Paragon HFS+ for Windows to get around the issue. Install it and forget it. Works great.

    Thanks! I had it installed but wanted to see if the benefits persisted after the trial ended before I spread heresay. Glad to hear they do :)

    Any idea how to block it from starting up automatically? There seems to be nothing in the program settings and it isn't in the windows start up and yet it auto runs on boot. Add it to start up and then disable it maybe?

    I'm not sure how to block it on startup or why you would even want to. It's just a driver to allow access to your HFS+ drives. Very little overhead.

    Yeah, it's been broken for years. Apple doesn't care about Boot Camp any more.

    It's probably been great for Paragon though.

    Paragon won't mount HFS+ after the trial expires =/
