    Macs use a different filesystem.

    Paragon might have something.

    Paragon Hard Disk Manager (HDM) supports HFS+

    File systems

    NTFS (v1.2, v3.0, v3.1)
    FAT16, FAT32
    Linux Ext2FS, Linux Ext3FS, Linux Ext4FS, Linux Swap
    Apple HFS+
    Other file systems (in the sector-by-sector mode)
    With BitLocker encrypted hard disks
    Hard Disk Manager for Windows Paragon Software Group

    Convert NTFS volumes to HFS+ and vice versa - Paragon NTFS-HFS Converter

    Write HFS+ volumes in Windows - Paragon HFS+ for Windows

    Internal or external drive? HFS+ is the MacOS native format, exFAT is fully supported on both Macs and Windows so it's the best choice for an external HDD to be used on both.

    Apparently, even the free version of Partition Manager 14
    • Convert NTFS <> HFS file systems without reformatting
    • Support of GPT/uEFI configurations
