Average transfer rates seemed to be acceptable and in line with what I would experience copying from any other file system. Yes, it's twenty-ish dollars for a file system driver...but it works and didn't corrupt the drives I'm sharing with my fellow mac users.
I have three Seagate external hard drives connected to my Windows PC, all of which were originally intended to be used with my Mac before iPad with iCloud came along and eliminated the need for external storage for the Mac OS. So I repurposed the drives to use with my PC which has huge storage needs for photos, audio and video. They have worked flawlessly when used with the OEM version of HFS+ which was supplied free from Seagate.
Then Windows 10 came along and I was caught by surprise when I installed it that my external drives were incompatible with the new operating system because it did not recognize HFS+ 9.1. Virtually everything I needed is on those Mac-formatted drives and now the only way to access my files was with the newest version of HFS+ for Windows 10.
Ideally I would be able to just download the new OEM version from Seagate but they were clueless about when or if such a version would ever be available. I consider this inexcusable … Windows 10 has been in development for a long time and Seagate should have had appropriate drivers available from Day One.
Caught by surprise I did what I had to do, which was to download the 10-day trial version of HFS+ for Windows 10 from the Paragon website so I could use it immediately and then follow up by ordering the disk media with license key from Paragon through Amazon (I bought it from Amazon because I could be guaranteed to get it the next day).
Other than my belief that $19.95 is too much to pay for what is just a basic driver, I am very pleased with its performance. Installation took a few seconds and my drives recognized it immediately. I really don’t have a way to measure if there is a performance boost but I have a gut feeling that the drives are performing faster. I had hoped that the software would include some documentation but what’s included is actually hilarious … the user manual consists of two files “Product Concept” and “Getting Started”. Both files contain essentially nothing of value. The software, to be clear, is really just a driver. Having it on a physical disk is meaningless; I only did it because Amazon did not offer a download option. Well, at least I have the disk in case I need to reinstall it again. Note that the actual product does not look like the seller's picture on this page, it is in fact sent is a DVD case like you get at the rental store and looks like it was printed by someone on their inkjet printer.
The driver does exactly what it is intended to do and hence earns 5-stars. As far as Seagate, that’s another issue. Because of them I’m out $20 for a driver that they should have had readily available for free download on the day of Windows 10’s product launch.
