    I put a second HDD into my MacBook Pro. Now I want to install Windows with Bootcamp and want both OSX and Windows to be able to read and write to that HDD.

    What I am asking is whether you'd recommend using HFS+ for this data partition and MacDrive to access it on Windows or format it as NTFS and use Tuxera NTFS for Mac to write to the NTFS disc.

    Suggest you use exFAT as both OS will be able to Read/Write to it native without installing anything.
