Mac formated drive (GPT Protective Partition) on Windows XP - possible to read?
Posted on 2010-11-22
A staff member brought in a USB hard drive from home to transfer some files. However he uses a Mac at home so I'm assuming it must be formated in some Mac specific format as when plugged into his Windows XP office PC it cannot recognise the drive.
Well that is, it does not give it a drive letter, and under Disk Manager it just says
Disk 1 - Healthy (GPT Protective Partition)
What can we do so that we can read the data onto the PC?
Thanks in advance.
