    Hey guys,

    so i have an external HDD that i believe was formated with HFS+. I'm trying to read and extract some of its content to a Windows machine i have. I'm trying to work with this program i found called HFSExplorer (http://hem.bredband.net/catacombae/hfsx.html).

    Only thing is, it won't detect the external HDD when plugged into my Windows machine. I try to autodetect but it will not find it. Some of the other options mention to detect from from the path name. But i don't know the path name.

    Any help full advice you guys can provide, would be very appreciated.

    Also. If you guys know of any better programs out there, that would help too. i just need access to the data on this HDD.

    Doesn't matter. No version of Windows can read Mac volumes out-of-the-box. You need third-party software like MacDrive.
