Like all GoFlex products the GoFlex for Mac series of drives are very flexible. The drives are formatted at the factory to run under Mac OS. However, the drive will work in Windows without reformatting using the Win HFS utility available on the GoFlex for Mac download page. Install the downloadable HFS+ driver on the PC to use the drive interchangeably between the two without having to format. This is the perfect solution for primarily Mac® computer users who still regularly utilize their PC. Since PCs will not recognize a drive formatted for Mac® computers, there are limitations for file transfer between the two. By installing this driver, users can take full advantage of both platforms without any file size or program restrictions.
Simply install the utility and the drive will mount as a drive letter like a drive with a Windows format.
This utility only works with GoFlex for Mac, GoFlex Desk for Mac, GoFlex Pro for Mac products.
