One Easy way to transfer files from Boot Camp to OS X
Authored by: eclpmb on Nov 12, '09 07:50:06AM
I use the free service Mesh to do that; a desginated folder or set of folders are syncronized to 5Gb of online storage and any number of Macs and PCs that you want. You can access the files from a web brower too,

I find i need to very occationally restart the client on the mac, but overall it means I can get my files no matter what OS I amon and even if i'm away from my Mac or PC.

Having just had a quick look at Dropbox i have to agree. I just had come across Mesh first.

Looks like (from the web page - I didn't actually try the product) Mesh has some desirable features like being able to sync any folder you want, not just one dropbox folder on your drive, but I accomplish this in Dropbox (on the Mac) by creating symbolic links that point to folders on my Dropbox (ex. if I have a web page in a folder on Dropbox and I create a symlink in my ~/Sites/ folder, then I can serve the webpage from my Mac and still have it sync over Dropbox.) Dunno if either one is necessarily better but sounds like Dropbox may be more bug free (at least on the Mac) as I never have to restart it or even touch the program itself.
