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.
