Reading Apple Mac hard disc on a Windows PC

November 7, 2010 at 12:53:40
Specs: Windows 7
I've got a hard disc drive from a dead Apple which contains important data (Claris database). How can this be read and saved onto a Windows 7 PC?
I was thinking of placing the Apple HDD in an USB IDE enclosure. This could then be connected to the PC. Will the PC recognise the files? Can the files be simply copied to the HDD in the Windows 7 PC?
Any help will be most appreciated.

Apple uses the HFS+ File Ssystem

Yes, Apple uses HFS+ or, as in my case, HFS (it's an old computer) - but how do you read the HFS disc on a Windows PC? I only want to copy one database file!
