    It's definitely the hfs+ drive that causes it to crash. Any ideas welcome as it will be a pain in the Arsenal having to unplug it every time I restart into bootcamp

    I have no issues with HFS+.

    ExFat volumes shared between OSX and Windows can create instability especially if it was created with the Mac's Disk Utility.

    as far as i can see its definitely the HFS+ drive. starting up with it in means it wont even get to the startup screen now, which is weird as originally it'd start up then crash. starting up without it and then plugging it in produces a crash within a couple of minutes. without the drive plugged in its completely stable.

    the HFS+ drive is 6 months old, the exFAT drive at least a year and both were plugged in when using windows 7 for many hours on many days.

    ive checked the driver on the exFAT drive, it says its up to date, but of course since i cant mount the HFS+ drive there's no driver to be updated.

    if i cant fix it, is there any way in windows to mark the drive as not to start up (in windows only).

    You have the Bootcamp HFS driver installed?

    Try disabling the Apple BootCamp HFS+ driver ( applehfs.sys; you can use the Microsoft utility "Autoruns" for that ) and use the free Paragon Windows 8/8.1 HFS+ driver instead. As an additional plus the Paragon driver comes with HFS+ r/w access.

    BTW, the HFS+ problem is not related to USB drives only.

    Free? It's 20 bucks on their site.

    Stay away from Macdrive whatever you do.

    The Paragon HFS+ version for Windows 8/8.1 is free now and works with Windows 10 on my MB Pro 7.1 mid 2010 (13). It also solves the VSS errors caused by applehfs.sys.
