I messed up my bosses Msi Wind u100, it had a OS X 10.5.8 partition as well as xp.I installed Windows 7 over xp, and now he cannot boot into OSX and I cannot access his files, so does anyone know how to access files on an unmounted OSX partition using windows 7? If you know how to help me with the boot issue I am having the topic is here: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=274483

There are 2 apps that I know of right off the top of my head.

The first is HFSExplorer, it's simpler, and will allow you to view and copy files from your Mac Partiton over to Windows.

And second is MacDrive, google for it.
It's more advanced, and allows you to copy files to, and edit files on your Mac Partition, basically reading and writing.

Ok, I just tried both of them and they don't work. The reason is the partition is unmounted I bet, any other ideas?

This is what disk management says about the disk with the partition: Posted Image

The third is the mac partition.
