Paragon Software Announces Free APFS to HFS+ Converter

Paragon Software Group has released APFS to HFS+ Converter by Paragon Software – a free system utility to work around APFS limitations by reverting back to HFS+ for specific use cases. If you are facing APFS limitations, such as incompatibility with Time Machine backups or FileVault 2 drive encryption, inability to format Fusion drives, or other drawbacks, the free APFS to HFS+ Converter by Paragon Software easily resolves the problem, reformatting volumes back to the original HFS+. To ensure maximum data safety, you can first create recovery media, boot your Mac from that volume, then convert the system volume.

How it works:

  1. Download and install APFS to HFS+ Converter by Paragon Software.
  2. Select a desired volume for conversion.
  3. Optional: Create recovery media in case of system disk conversion.
  4. Perform the conversion.

Earlier this year, Paragon Software released APFS for Windows by Paragon Software, a driver which enables Windows users to access APFS volumes on PCs. The tool enables full read and beta write access for APFS-formatted partitions. With APFS for Windows by Paragon Software, PC users are able to instantly access and write to APFS-formatted hard disk drives (HDDs), solid-state drives (SSDs), or flash drives directly on Windows PCs.

System requirements:

  • macOS 10.12 or above
  • Sufficient disk space for conversion output (based on volume size)
