    Native Windows does not support Mac HFS+ partitions.  You need to install a third party driver for HFS+ partitions.  There are commercial options like MacDrive and Paragon HFS+ for Windows.  Apple used to include drivers for read only access in Boot Camp, but I don't know if they are still included or not as I no longer use Boot Camp.

    You should see it in Disk Management - picture below. It can be made Offline by mouse rightclick.

    You should also see it in Device Manager where it can be disabled. Offline & disabled is how I keep it unless I want to copy something from the
    Mac disk to Windows.

    Right click in area to the left where small icon is where it says Disk 1?


    You can see the dropdown that results see in my picture by double clicking on it to mak it bigger.
