What is HFVExplorer 1.3.1 (for Windows)?

HFVExplorer is a very useful Windows tool that can create, format, read and write HFS floppies, hard disks and disk images on a PC.  HFVExplorer is especially useful in the case of transfering the first Mac OS to floppy disks in order to install it on a real old Macintosh when you only have access to a Windows PC since without HFVExplorer, it would be impossible to create the first booting/install Mac OS floppy disk that will allow you to start using the old Mac.

Another key scenario in using HFVExplorer is when you need to copy Stuffit Expander to a Mac that does not already have Stuffit Expander installed.  This scenario makes it impossible to copy any Mac application using a PC because without compressing Mac applications first, the resource forks would be destroyed the instant it is handled by a PC and obviously, it's impossible to compress it before copying it to a floppy disk because there is no decompression tool on the other end.  That's where HFVExplorer becomes the key of success: With HFVExplorer, you can copy ANY Mac file or application without destroying the resource forks!
