copying data back to apple drive from Windows PC

Recovered data from an external drive used with an Apple Mac. Hfs explorer did the job on a Windows 10 pc. How can I get the data back onto a new drive so the mac owner can get it plugged in to and working so he can copy the DATA?

You can use some flash drive (pen drive) or you can install iCloud for Windows and load data to iCloud, drive then access it from Mac

Trouble is there nearly 1tb of data. If I plug any sort of drive into a Windows computer it will be formatted as fat32 or ntfs.

add a new drive to the MAC, install the OS, connect either via network or USB to the data drive and drag and drop the files

I don't have the Mac computer at the moment. If I get hold of a new hard drive and format it for an Apple computer by the seller (they will do this for me). Can I use HFS Explorer or similar to copy the data back to that drive?

Why not just do it from within OSX itself?

OSX supports ExFat so you could always use that.

But that's the problem. I don’t have an Apple computer.

Windows also will format as EXFat (windows Vista and newer)

You can also just use NTFS.  OS X can read, but not write NTFS by default.  You have to buy 3rd party software or tweak OS X to get it to write to NTFS.  However, having it as read only prevents them from accidentally destroying the data you recovered for them.

That looks useful. I'll see how it works later today.

Sorted it by formatting the new drive as exFAT. I didn't realise that it was capable of read and write in osx. Never really used it before to be honest. The owner can always copy the data from the disk to his Mac and then format the drive as HFS+ if he wants.
