Paragon HFS+ does cost $20, but it also offers a 10-day free trial. If you just need to recover files from a drive, 10 days is plenty of time to install this file system driver, copy your files over, and uninstall it. If you want to use Mac drives on Windows on an ongoing basis, paying $20 so you can use the drive properly is a pretty good deal. As a bonus, Paragon HFS+ doesn’t require you have the insecure Java installed.
Paragon HFS+ runs in the background and automatically starts on bootup, so accessing your Mac drives will feel exactly like accessing normal Windows drives.
It simply works out of the box too – previously inaccessible drives suddenly show up like any other, and you can now easily transfer data to and from a Mac using an external HFS+ formatted drive as an intermediary. There’s no performance penalty either – we happily transferred multi-gigabyte files via a USB 2 connection at around 40MB/s, for example.

Apple Core Storage is a logical volume format introduced by Apple that serves the basis for FileVault (Full Disk Encryption) and Fusion Drive technologies. Our product supports Core Storage on single disk only, and doesn’t support Fusion Drive or FileVault configurations.
There are several issues that may lead to this problem. For instance, if you are running HFS+ for Windows by Paragon Software in a BootCamp configuration, you won’t be able to see the Mac OS X system drive due to Core Storage restrictions. You can disable Core Storage to solve this problem.
