I'm running Windows 7 and I would like to partition my D: volume and make it HFS+, but I cannot find any tool that will accomplish this.

Has anyone done this before? Is it possible? I have EaseUS Partition Master but it does not support HFS/HFS+.

http://gparted.sourceforge.net/ will make HFS+ partitions. Just an FYI, gparted can only shrink, not enlarge, HFS+ partitions.

    But I think it's the other way around... GParted can only shrink NOT enlarge HFS+ partitions. May 24, 2021 at 13:33

Well, If you had a HFS+ driver that hooks into the system properly (as opposed to hfs explorer), you could do it - I currently use a copy of macdrive bundled with some other software, which gives me a right click and HFS+ format option.

Paragon has another option but I don't see any indication if it'll allow formatting.
