Other World Computing Releases MacDrive 11 With Full APFS Support, Launches The Most Comprehensive Tool For Accessing Mac Disks On Windows PC

Accessing Mac-formatted drives, editing and backing up on Windows PCs is easier than ever with the new version of MacDrive

WOODSTOCK, Ill., June 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — More computers around the world www.OWC.com – The leading end-to-end ecosystem solution provider of computer hardware, accessories and software for both consumers and professionals today announced the release of MacDrive 11 with full APFS support, making it the single most complete for accessing Mac-formatted drives and media on a Windows PC. Coupled with full access, MacDrive 11 is over 40% faster than other solutions out there, all while protecting your data from failure.

For over 25 years, MacDrive has been the industry standard for reading, writing and managing Mac HFS+ disks in Windows. MacDrive 11 builds on this strong tradition by adding unmatched support for APFS disks with full read and write access and protections not available in any other solution. MacDrive is the most robust and advanced utility that allows users to share drives between Mac and PC. MacDrive 11 comes in two variants; Standard for accessing almost any APFS or HFS+ and Pro formatted Mac drive with advanced disk support for OWC SoftRAID and Apple RAID 0/1 volumes.

Key features of MacDrive 11’s APFS feature:

  • Reading and writing: MacDrive 11 is the only solution that provides full read and write support for APFS volumes, even if the volume has duplicate files or was backed up by Time Machine.

  • Impact protection: Unlike other solutions, if an APFS disk is unexpectedly detached, your existing files and data are safe and will not be damaged.

  • Multivolume disks: APFS allows users to create multiple volumes in a single partition and share free space between volumes. Only MacDrive allows the user to easily switch between volumes to access all their data.

  • Formatting: Don’t have a Mac, but want to share files with someone who does? MacDrive allows the creation of APFS and HFS+ volumes directly on a PC.

  • Snapshots: When backed up with Time Machine, macOS creates “snapshots” on APFS volumes. MacDrive provides access to all snapshots, allowing users to restore files that have been deleted or changed from previous states, even when a Time Machine backup is not available.

  • Duplicate files: In macOS, APFS files can be duplicated instantly, without consuming additional disk space. Only MacDrive provides full read and write access to duplicate files on APFS volumes.

Make Windows smarter
Once installed, MacDrive 11 makes Windows “Mac aware” by allowing PCs to read and write Mac drives just like PC drives. There is nothing to throw or learn; simply plug in a Mac drive and access almost any hard drive, SSD (solid state drive), CD, DVD, floppy, and more.

MacDrive 11 Additional Features:

  • Full Rim Compatibility: Simplify editing and collaboration processes by sharing Mac disks with Windows users and formatting Mac disks directly from a PC for true cross-platform workflows.

  • Repair Mac disks: MacDrive’s disk repair feature will automatically detect problems with Mac disks and fix common disk errors (HFS+ only).

  • Time Machine backups: Browse your Time Machine backups and copy those files and folders to a Windows PC.

  • Native or virtual: Works with Apple’s Boot Camp utility and virtualization software like VMware Fusion or Parallels.

  • File Defragmentation: Improve disk performance with automatic file defragmentation and optimization (HFS+ only).

  • Read-only option: The “Read Only” mode is perfect for forensic specialists and law enforcement agencies to avoid changes to disks.

MacDrive 11 Standard is available today for $49.99
