Paragon HFS+ for Windows 10
Access Mac OS X HFS+ partitions from a Windows PC

If you've ever had to share an external drive between Windows and Mac OS systems then you'll know it can be, well, something of a challenge. Macs only come with the ability to read Windows NTFS partitions, and PCs can't see a Mac's HFS+ partition at all, so you'll probably end up cobbling together a messy FAT32-based compromise as a file system that both computers can read.

But there is another way. Install Paragon HFS+ for Windows and your PC will immediately gain the ability to both read and write Mac OS X partitions. The program comes in the form of a file system driver, so there's no extra interface to learn, no options to set. Just use the Windows Disk Management applet to mount an HFS+ partition (the Help file explains more if you need assistance) and you'll be able to see it in Explorer, drag and drop files there, or use the drive in applications, just like any other.

Please note that this is the commercial version of HFS+ for Windows. There's also a separate free edition. The commercial edition (available here as a trial), works with all editions of Windows from XP upwards, includes unprecendented high-speed HFS+ performance, full access to HFS+ partitions (read and write access) and much more.

Verdict:

A simple way to give your PC full access to Mac OS X HFS+ partitions

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
