Read HFS+ volumes when booted in Windows Apps
Thanks to a reply to a recent hint, I started using HFSExplorer, a free and open-source utility that provides read-only access to HFS+ volumes and DMG files from Windows. If you use Boot Camp to run Windows, this is a great way to get to your Mac's files, at least on a read-only basis.

The latest version has fixed the bugs I experienced the first time I tried it, and it's quite user-friendly, so I think it is worthy of a macosxhints mention. This utility allows me to use HFS+ only backups, as I can access my files from Windows now in case I ever need to.

I started using HFS+ a few weeks ago (I think I stumbled upon it on iusethis.com). Its been a godsend for those times I'm booted into Boot Camp instead of VMWare Fusion. Strongly recommend this software.
