comment Directories showing as files when browsing a Time Machine backup on Windows
They probably have content in the Resource fork like an Alias. Either way I think you are out of luck trying to access on a Windows system. Even the BSD Unix commands on a Mac have no knowledge of some Apple constructs.

If they are symlinks (and not some proprietary Apple format) then you can simply look at the contents in a text viewer which will show the target of the link.

comment Reformat / resize an external hard drive removed from a NAS
If you select the drive, it is irrelevant whether OS X can read any of the partitions. If the drive is partitioned with MBR then there some limitations about how you can change it. You should post an image of what Disk Utility shows.

comment Copy from `OS X` and paste using `OS X Screen Sharing` to a Raspberry Pi
I tried this, and rebooted the Pi (but not the Mac), and unfortunately it did not work.
