MacDrive 10.5 + APFS (Beta)
MacDrive 10.5 + APFS (beta) adds the ability to read disks formatted with Apple’s new file system, APFS.
With MacDrive, your APFS disks appear in Windows with their own drive letter, allowing you to read files directly using your favorite Windows apps, as well as copy files from the disk to your PC.
APFS support is being released as a public beta, as we continue to test and improve its implementation.
MacDrive 10.5 is a free update for current MacDrive 10 Standard and Pro users. Previous MacDrive customers can upgrade their older versions of MacDrive for a discounted price.
If you are currently using another software solution to access Mac-formatted disks, we do offer a discounted competitive upgrade to switch to MacDrive.
MacDrive 10.5 + APFS beta supports read-only access to Apple APFS drives. APFS support is currently only available on Windows 10. MacDrive does not support encrypted APFS disks. Support for additional OSes and write support is being researched, but no release date is planned at this point.
For almost 20 years, HFS+ has been the standard file system used on all Macs. With the release of High Sierra, Apple has moved to a new file system for its SSD drives. The new file system, APFS, provides a foundation for the latest storage devices and adds features such as cloning, snapshots, crash protection, space sharing and more.
APFS is available for all Macs with SSD drives. Support for Fusion and HDD Macs has not been announced.
