Hi guys today i am gonna show you how to format a partition using HFS+ format using gparted in linux which is disable by default in gparted  !

Before starting lets know what is HFS+ ?
HFS Plus or HFS+ is a file system developed by Apple Inc. to replace their Hierarchical File System (HFS) as the primary file system used in Macintosh computers (or other systems running Mac OS)

first you need to install gparted
Open up your Terminal app
then type


sudo apt-get install gparted
hit enter 
now it will ask for password (but you cant see your password that you are typing 
this is for some security reasons in linux ) 

 open gpared (here is a screenshot of gparted app)

select your targeted partition carefully (one mistake may cause lose of your data ! )

now unmount your partition 

 after unmounting your partition you can select format by right clicking and scroll down !
and select file format you want to format here many fileformat available for you

but you cant select HFS+ because its not come with default in gparted
so follow my instructions to enable this features

Open up your Terminal app and enter these 2 commands in:

   wget http://cl.ly/2u1B120D3C22/download/hfsplus-apps.tar.gz



  sudo tar xzvf hfsplus-apps.tar.gz -C /



 here its installed

now reopen your gparted app

then check its works or not

Wooooooooooooooo its works !

thank you for watching my tutorial
