I installed bootcamp and win 7, then I installed a 3D cad program (SDS2) and I am having a hard time getting to the files/folders I need for this program. after a search I found the folders I need but I see that I only have read permissions... how can i change that, it dont show up under the sharing tools.
its /Volumes/BOOTCAMP/ProgramData/SDS2_7.2 how can i get write permissions for this folder?
i just need to be able to find this folder and be able to write to it on the windows side
HELP
QUOTE Thanks

That is a hidden system folder that contains user data, program settings, etc.

Not sure I understand why you would need to directly access anything in that folder. Any functionality/settings should be accessed through the application itself, not via going into that folder.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I got it working, I found it on the windows side, I had to uncheck hide system & hidden files. the program stores the "job" folders under that folder. I wanted to copy a job folder from work and access from home but from the mac side it would not let me write to it... thats fine now that i found it on the windows side.
Thanks for the reply
