"Works Great, Transfers Files Between Mac & PC on Ext HD"

July 24, 2015  |  By cafedeville

 |  Version: Paragon HFS+ for Windows 10.0

Pros

On my Windows 8 PC, it Reads/Writes to my "Mac OS Extended" formatted external hard drive.

Mounts the external drive as if it were any other external device without having to open any additional software.

Cons

I can't comment on what the other reviewers were trying to achieve with this software with partitioned HD's, but I have not experienced any file corruption issues personally - and I very frequently go back and forth between my Mac and PC with my Mac-formatted external drive.

Summary

I use this to transfer video files and other assets between a Macbook Pro and a PC running Windows 8 via an external hard drive that is formatted for Mac with no problems. The free trial was plenty of time for me to decide that this was the best software for what I need to do when compared against TransMac. Happily purchased it and received the activation codes immediately.

"This app will corrupt your mac installs, DATA LOSS"

March 11, 2015

 |  Version: Paragon HFS+ for Windows 10.0

Pros

There is no pros with this. It will corrupt your files.
It will allow you to view and edit files but then when you try to boot back into mac it will start to give errors and refuse to boot.

Cons

Will corrupt mac partitions and you will lose data.

Summary

You need then to boot with USB drive into Yosemite (or other), then on the top bar access the Disk Utility, choose the disk and press verify disk, and then repair. If you are lucky (like me) the first time it will say it failed, but then let you boot.

Since I didnt understand it was paragon that corrupted my files, I continue to work, then when I boot windows again, it again corrupted my disks more, this time disk utility couldnt repair them, and they also disappeared from windows.

Currently in the time expensive process of restoring everything from backups. Luckly I use Time Machine permanently, so, my files are stored there and also in the cloud via Dropbox.

Since time machine isnt a bootable copy of the disk, I will have to re-create my partitions and reinstall everything from scratch, all because of this piece of garbage software.

BEWARE!!!

"Totally disagree with other posts..."

December 01, 2014  |  By jrgarrigues

 |  Version: Paragon HFS+ for Windows 10.0

Pros

Full read/write access to HFS+ data storage from my PC (Win8).

Cons

Support fro HFS+ will probably be native to the next version of Windows, but we're not there yet!

Summary

This product is great. I was unsure, because of the other posts here on CNET Download, but I gave it a shot anyway and it performed flawlessly. I'm on a long-term travel; brought my Drobo, but it's formatted for my iMac (didn't bring a Mac...). Paragon HFS+ for Windows allowed me to gain access to all my data, and did not compromise my files (I borrowed a MacBook Air to confirm). I'm buying it right now! Thanks Paragon!

"Another HD hosed"

January 11, 2014  |  By lezouave2010

 |  Version: Paragon HFS+ for Windows 10.0

Pros

none. the product damaged my system.

Cons

Data loss!

Summary

Using Paragon HFS+ for Windows resulted in two HFS+ devices being corrupted.

In Windows the volumes are still available read and write, but none of the devices' volumes are available in Mac. Disk Utility sees the devices, the volumes are grayed out, and Disk Utility cannot repair them.
