How to Copy a HFS drive to another HFS drive using a PC ?

I am trying to transfer files (photos) from one HFS drive to another HFS drive using a PC. I installed HFSExplorer which allows me to see the HFS files on both drives, and copy these HFS files to my PC. Is there a PC utility that allows me to transfer files from one HFS drive to another HFS drive using a PC, or a utility to copy the PC files I extracted (using HFSExplorer) to another HFS drive using a PC ?

I have 250 GB of photos that I need to transfer from hard disk to hard disk. I'm questioning if the solutions recommended are the best for large volumes of data transfers?

If you just want to transfer some files, you'll have to go file by file, and the trial versions won't work for such volumes.

If you want to transfer the whole HDD, I never tried it between a PC & a Mac, but cloning the 1st drive onto the second should give you an exact image.

Maybe you can connect your PC and your Mac to the same network, or the first drive to your Mac. More details on what exactly you want to do might help.

I just tried opening one HFS drive using MacDrive it displayed "the disk structure is corrupted and unreadable" and "Checking Catalog File". It doesn't appear to be running. What repair/recover tool is recommended? Note: I didn't get this error using HFSExplorer and I could view all files.

I don't do much Mac, but I've always been satisfied with MacDrive (Registered version).
Did you check the free version's limitations?
Did you try importiing some of the files on your PC using HFSExplorer, then exporting them using MacDrive?

How are both drives attached to your PC?
Is it HFS or HFS+?
What about booting with some Linux distro & mounting both drives?

Even though MacDrive indicated the disk structure was corrupted and unreadable I was able to transfer the files from one HFS drive to the other HFS drive. Both drives were connected to a PC. I won't know for sure until tomorrow if the files I transferred are readable by a Mac.  Thank you for your help.
