In the interim I need to copy my server files to a Mac (HFTS+) formated drive ASAP.

Can I connect this Mac drive via USB direct to the server and simply copy the files (no need to read/write) ?

Windows doesn't know how to read or write HFS+ volumes.  I think there is a commercial third-party HFS+ implementation, but if you had that, you wouldn't be asking the question.

If the volume of data you have to transfer is small enough, you might try using a USB flash drive, or a USB card reader + a memory card, to transport the files from the PC to the Mac.
