Reading an Apple hard drive in windows XP

  Date: Nov 29    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 371

I am trying to recover some data from an external hard drive that was
used on an Apple computer. I have used some of my data recovery
software and can now see that some data exists, but of course it is not
readable. Paragon Partition Manager says it is a GPT Volume, and the
File system is Apple HFS.

Do any of you know if there is a reader or converter available to allow
me to access this data without plugging the drive into an Apple computer?

With clean data she was able to work on the Mac at the college lab and bring
it home on a floppy or zip disk to continue working on her PC at home.
