Default Working with HFS+ formatted drives

Hi, I'm on Windows 10 64bit.
I'm curious if anyone had success working directly to HFS+ drives on windows 10 with Paragon HFS or MacDrive. I don't want to experiment and find the hard way that I could have corrupted files.

Used both and both work. For me, MacDrive was preferred, BUT, was more than double the cost of Paragon, and MacDrive had not released a Windows 10 version when I needed it, so Paragon was the only choice at the time

Yep, Paragon (latest version) has been fine for me too.

Ever tried ExFAT? Native in both OS'. I have the Paragon HFS+ on the PC and Paragon NTFS for Mac and all good, but use ExFAT locally.

ExFat on the Mac has a real danger of complete file corruption. Reading from it is fine but writing to it, it does something bad to the structure of all the data on the disk.

Lost 13 episodes of work to it.
