Had my HFS+ formatted Drobo connected to a Mac via Firewire 800. I no longer have that Mac so I’m trying to connect it to my Windows 7 laptop via USB. Anyone have any issues with MacDrive? Should I be concerned about using it?
At this point moving the data and reformatting really isn’t an option as I don’t have space anywhere else. Also I expect to get a new Mac in about 5 months and don’t want to bother with moving data again at that point.
I use MacDrive. No problems. Works great. Aside from Drobo, I have multiple external HD, NTFS and HFS+.
When my Windows machine using XP and it read out the HFS+ drive perfect.
Desktop computer upgraded to Vista a year back, still no problems reading and writing to the HFS+ drive.
We mix an external HD with a video collection between my Windows and a MacBook. It works well.
I also make backups from the MacDrive to the Drobo, and back again. The backup is up to 750 GB and no problems.
