One Easy way to transfer files from Boot Camp to OS X
Authored by: Sesquipedalian on Nov 13, '09 09:06:06PM

If you formatted your Boot Camp partition as FAT32 instead of NTFS, you can already read and write to it in Finder, just like any other volume. You don't even need to move the files: just work with them in place.

Even if you formatted your Boot Camp partition as NTFS, Finder can read your Boot Camp partition directly, as noted by others above. To move a Windows file to your Mac partition, just open your Boot Camp partition in Finder, navigate to the file you want, and copy it to the desired destination.

There is no need for third party internet based file syncing tools like DropBox to do this sort of thing.
