Paragon Software addresses HFS+, bridges incompatibilities

Building on its already established commitment to bridge the gap
between Windows and Mac operating systems, Paragon Software Group
(PSG), the technology leader in innovative data security and data
management solutions, is introducing the latest addition to its
technology portfolio — HFS+ for Windows.

Paragon’s HFS+ for Windows enables the use of Mac-formatted
partitions in Windows operating systems. Utilizing Paragon’s own
unique technology, the Universal File System Driver (UFSD), Paragon’s
HFS+ for Windows is able to extend the boundaries of Microsoft
Windows’ scalability and interoperability. The UFSD technology was
specifically developed to provide full access (read/write, format,
etc.) to volumes of the most popular file systems (NTFS, FAT,
Ext2/3FS, etc.) under various platforms, (DOS, Windows, Linux, and
Mac) when these file systems are not supported.

According to Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group, “For the
past 10 years, Paragon has been developing file system drivers
focused on breaking down the barriers to cross-platform communication
and providing true operating system independence for our users. HFS+
for Windows is the latest addition to our technology portfolio, and
anyone needing to use Mac-formatted partitions under Windows will
find it to be an indispensable tool.”

Paragon’s HFS+ for Windows can be installed on all versions of
Windows, and eliminates the need to use complex processes on
different platforms, thus reducing costs and increasing the
usefulness of the user’s existing investment in hardware and software.

Key Features include:

— Read access: Gives Windows users the ability to read data from Mac
(HFS+ formatted) volumes.
— Easy to install: The driver is easily installed through a user-
friendly wizard.
— High performance: Transfers files at a rate similar to the native
Windows NTFS file-system performance.
— No system degradation during data transfers. — No limitation to
maximum file/partition size: Must be within Windows
and HFS+ limitations.
