Windows 7: How do I mount a Mac USB drive?

How do I mount a Mac USB drive?

I am in the process of getting rid of my MacBook, and I used Apple's Time Machine to create a full backup onto a Mac-formatted external USB hard drive. I would now like to be able to read the files on a Windows 7 machine, however when I plug in the drive, Windows 7 doesn't show it in My Computer. When I start up Drive Manager, it requests that I initialize the drive. I don't to do anything like that because I don't want to lose the data.

Any suggestions?

If the drive isn't formatted for a PC to read, and is in the native Mac HFS format, then you will need a utility such as MacDrive to allow the PC to read the drive.
