I made encrypted disk image on my MacBook. Now I want to open it on my PC (Windows 10).

How can I open (mount) an encrypted dmg image file in Windows 10?

According to the website HFSExplorer can open and read encrypted dmg images.

HFSExplorer is an application that can read Mac-formatted hard disks and disk images. It can read the file systems HFS (Mac OS Standard), HFS+ (Mac OS Extended) and HFSX (Mac OS Extended with case sensitive file names).

HFSExplorer allows you to browse your Mac volumes with a graphical file system browser, extract files (copy to hard disk), view detailed information about the volume and create disk images from the volume. HFSExplorer can also read most .dmg / .sparsebundle disk images created on a Mac, including zlib / bzip2 compressed images and AES-128 / AES-256 encrypted images. It supports the partition schemes Master Boot Record, GUID Partition Table and Apple Partition Map natively.

  • I tried HFSExplorer, it ask for password which I tipped and then show empty system folder (dmg image is encrypted with AES 256, and is correctly opened only with Mac OS). Mar 7, 2016 at 20:48

You can open encrypted dmg file with TransMac.
It's a very nice software instead of dmg extractor (it's not free, that's why I don't like it). I opened my dmg encrypted file with it on deleted some things and that's all..

  • Got an error message from TransMac: "Encrypted volumes not supported"
