Apple Mac computers use the HFS+ partitions which are illegible to the Windows operating systems. So if you format a USB pen drive using the HFS+ partition in your Mac, then it cannot be accesses in your Windows PC simply because HFS+ is not supported in Windows. Similarly, you cannot attach your Mac hard disk into your Windows PC to retrieve important data from it. But with the free Paragon HFS+ driver for Windows 8 / 8.1, now it has become possible to access the HFS+ formatted partitions in Windows without any problem. These HFS+ partitions open up in Windows just like any other partitions and you can copy, delete, read or write files on them like you would normally do on NTFS partitions.
