HFSExplorer allows you to browse your Mac volumes with a graphical file system browser, extract files (copy to hard disk), view detailed information about the volume and create disk images from the volume.

Features

Major Features of HFSExplorer

Load file system from file

This is for when the HFS+ file system is located on a file inside the current file system. One example is when you want to load a .dmg or .sparsebundle disk image. Another example is when you’re on a UNIX-like system and want to access a block device (the file would be something like /dev/disk0 or /dev/hda). Partition systems (Apple Partition Map, GUID Partition Table and Master Boot Record) will be autodetected if present.

Load file system from device
This is because block devices in Windows are not as easily accessible as under UNIX-like systems. The user will be presented with a dialog where it can choose which partition to read.
