    As per the title, can Windows PCs read/write to HFS+ formatted hard drives via the AEBS AirDisk? I have my hard drive formatted as HFS+ hooked up to my AEBS in a mixed Mac OS/Windows home network (as well as a Boot Camp partition on Mac). I can see the drive on in Mac OS but I don't know how to open it in Windows, on either the dedicated Windows PCs or my Boot Camp partition.

    The filesystem of the drive isn't relevant.

    The AirDisk does the translation and you just connect via a network protocol. The same situation happens when a Windows machine is accessing a server with disks in another file system. (e.g. non-NTFS/FAT32)
