I think its really HARD to implement, coz many factors will get involved starting with damn windows not good enough with MAC partitions in general even with 3rd-party apps
better to have or think of having an iMAC for such cases.
I've got several macs here, that's not the issue. It'd just save a ton of time if we could go right from DE to an HFS+ formatted drive with a fixed/working/mountable cabinet file. I don't even care if it just did a sort of data export along with filesystem fixup to a blank drive that never gets mounted to Windows. And, when you've got a customer with 5 years of weekly backups from a video editing studio in a time backup who actually wants to preserve the back versions of files, it just becomes impossible because the number of duplicate files would push the size into Petabytes if you copied it to an NTFS formatted drive. But, just one bad sector in the HFS+ cabinet will cause MacOS to refuse to mount the image, so it becomes near impossible to do what they want.
I think there are some 3rd-party Apps for this, (MacOpener maybe) i remember once i tried those and got stuck with UN-mounting the MAC drive, then when i plugged it back the partition was gone
probably bug been fixed by now, but i can give you a small Tip here too beside all of this...
In MAC connect the drive >> Share it on your LAN >> Assign LAN drive & save your data (Gigabit is recommended here)
