I upgraded from a MacBook Pro with Windows 7 in Boot Camp to an iMac with Windows 10 in Boot Camp.

In Windows 7 my I had read access to my macOS volumes (no write access), however, in Windows 10 I can only see the Windows Boot Camp volume in Windows Explorer.

Are the Mac volumes no longer accessible from within Windows?


APFS volumes cannot be read in Windows. Boot Camp only provides drivers for HFS+ volumes, so it's not a problem with the version of Windows but rather that the format of the Mac volume has moved on beyond the support drivers made available by Apple for Boot Camp.

  • I assume the use of APFS is optional. If so, then I assume this problem could be fixed by reinstalling macOS to partitions that do not use APFS? – David Anderson Apr 12 '18 at 8:44
