New version works with MBR disks, adds Console

Paragon has released an update to its HFS+ communication software for Windows, Paragon HFS+ for Windows 8. The software allows Windows Machines to see Mac-formatted HFS+ and HFSX volumes. Users can access any type of hard disk attached via USB, FireWire, IDE, SATA or eSATA. The utility supports APM and GPT disks and auto-mounts HFS+/HFSX partitions. Large file transfers are said to be stable and Paragon claims content can be transferred at a faster rate than native HFS configurations.

Version 8.0 adds full access to HFS+/HFSX partitions. Users already could read the partitions, however v8.0 adds the ability to write data. MBR disk support is new in v8, as is Boot Camp driver support and a disk management console.

HFS+ for Windows works in 32- and 64-bit modes on Windows XP, Vista and 7, along with Windows Server 2003 and 2008. Customers can now download the software for $40.
