Boot Camp - Access one partition from the other?
Authored by: bradleyd1971 on Apr 07, '06 08:58:59AM

I believe when you are running OS X you would be able to see the NTFS partition and read from it, but not write to it. So if you had a file you created in Windows, and then needed to use under OS X you could pull it from the Windows partition and then save it in the OS X partition.

I don't know about seeing the OS X partition from Windows though. I do know that on my Windows PC at home I can map drive letters to the drives on my macbook and my emac though (but that uses samba I believe).

Boot Camp - Access one partition from the other?
Authored by: brucio on Apr 07, '06 09:34:56AM

While a USB thumbdrive may be a workaround for laptop users, is it possible to create a 3rd partition on the boot drive? OSX>HFS+, XP>NTFS, and a FAT32 partition for tranferring files?

(Still waiting for virtualization.)
