Editors' Review


With MacDrive 9 Standard, you can access, manage, and even create and format disk drives for Apple's Mac OS from inside Windows Explorer. Not just hard drives, but removable USB drives, too. MacDrive can repair damaged Mac disks, burn Mac-compatible CDs and DVDs, and do other things disk managers are supposed to do.


Peace: MacDrive's peace symbol icon emphasizes the software's mission: cross-platform peace and seamless interoperability between the Mac and Windows worlds.

Create Mac disks: MacDrive can create, format, and modify drives in Mac OS Standard (HFS), Mac OS Extended (HFS+), and Mac OS Extended (case-sensitive; HFSX).

Advanced options: We could prevent changes to Mac disks, customize MacDrive's compatibility with earlier versions of Windows and Mac OS, and select files to view in dual-format hybrid CDs and DVDs.


Balky disk list: Mac-to-Windows interoperability can be a bit slow or balky at times. For instance, the MacDrive Disk Manager's drive list wouldn't or couldn't scroll until after we'd formatted a Mac drive.

Cheaper alternatives: If all you want to do is transfer files between a Mac and PC, cheaper and easier options aren't hard to find (Dropbox, for example).

Bottom Line

If you own or support both Windows and Mac machines, MacDrive 9 Standard can make your life much easier.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of MacDrive Standard.

"Buyer Beware!"

August 19, 2015  |  By natehm8

 |  Version: MacDrive Standard


-Worked in Windows 8.1 for writing to Mac partition (iTunes library only)


-Slowed down system dramatically
-May have been responsible for corruption HD
-Does not work with Windows 10! Must pay to upgrade to new version!


Bought this software roughly a year ago and paid $59.99. From the get go with a clean install Windows 8.1 would have issues trying to read/index the Mac partition and Task Manager would show 100% disk usage, slowing down the system.
Upon upgrading to Windows 10 I discovered that MacDrive 9 is not supported and shortly after found that MediaFour had released a new version called MacDrive 10 and expected me to pay $30 to upgrade. This is a poor way to treat your customers, creating limited functionality and forcing customers to pay money to upgrade. This is just so you can use one feature in the app, writing to the Mac partition. The operating system was a free upgrade but you expect me to shell out an additional $30 just to use the software? Basically it's a trap and MediaFour is bullying customers into shelling out more money.

I contacted MediaFour and sent them my key and purchase date hoping I could at least get a discount. In short their response was "tough luck". I will never purchase software from this company again.
