    hfs and hfs+ in windows

    Greetings,

    Recently my mac hardware died, and because i only had it to be able to test/experiment i do not have any spare mac equipment. I had 2 storage hard drives in there where i had some data that i now need. Is it possible to mount these two drives in windows? if not, is it possible to mount these drives in OpenBSD? -- i have thought about possibly rebuilding one of my openbsd boxes to a Linux that had the kernel support for hfs, however they are both running servers that i cannot take down (they are for my home-run business). I could possible recompile the kernel on one of them however since they are redundant. Any help would be apreciated since google was not very much of a help.

    AFAIK, you can't mount them in Windows.

    You can mount them in linux or bsd.

    I've never really used bsd so I don't know the differences between open and freebad.

    However, google turns up plenty of results for mounting hfs or hfs plus under linux and *bsd.

    here is one link... you can find the rest on google

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    I don't have anything to test on but will this work? It says it won't do it on HFS+. It's made for unix but there ports to windows.

    But if I'm reading this right BOOO. Did you check the OpenBSD site first.

    not really because i wasn't fond of taking one of my servers down. i did, however, find just recently a program called macdisk for windows... I am going to give that a shot:

    My first goal is to get the drive contents through windows, my last resort is the bsd --

    [random thought]
    is there a way to mount ext2 or ext3 file systems in windows??

    The first one I listed is ported to windows.
