HFSExplorer is a straightforward OS X utility capable of reading the HFS+ (Mac OS Extended), HFS (Mac OS Standard) and HFSX (Mac OS Extended with case sensitive file names) file systems.

By using HFSExplorer, you can browse your Mac's volumes, extract and copy files, create disk images and view detailed information about a volume of your choice.

On top of that, HFSExplorer provides the necessary tools to read AES-128 encrypted images, DMG disk images, as well as, ZLIB and BZIP2 compressed images.

In addition, HFSExplorer comes with support for the Apple Partition Map, GUID Partition Table and Master Boot Record partition schemes.

HFSExplorer proves its utility, if you need to access files on the Mac OS X hard driver from Windows, the content from your HFS+ formatted iPod or DMG disk image.

The HFSExplorer utility is a cross-platform software that can be used on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows.

What's New in This Release:
  • Feature: The "Load file system from device" dialog is enabled for non-Windows systems (Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris are supported initially).
  • Change: The HFSExplorer Windows launcher (hfsexplorer.exe) can now open the Java download page from the dialog box displayed when no Java runtime could be located.
  • Change: Binaries and scripts have been relocated into the "bin" directory.
  • Bugfix: Extracting files in Windows under Java 7 or higher caused false errors to be thrown because HFSExplorer tried to set UNIX-specific UID/GID properties for the extracted files.
