Bootcamp: Using files between the partitions
 
Hello everyone,

I intend to buy a Mac Book Pro soon and use XP with Bootcamp but I need to know something important.

Can I view and use files between the Mac OS partition and the XP partition?

I would like to just make the XP part big enough for the OS itself and store all my personal files, music, and apps on the Mac partition.

Would I then be able to access the Mac partition and all the files from XP?

yes you can access the windows partition from osx as long as you format it as fat32 and the max size for it is 32 gigs. no you cant see the osx partion windows cant read that format. if you need files from the osx you would have to transfer them while loged in to osx not xp....

You could get a program like MacDrive to access the files on the Mac partition

ehh that really makes the bootcamp thing a little less enjoyable...i would have liked to have been able to access my music and stuff from the OSX partition...but whatever, i'm sure i'd get used to it.

Wow! that program looks perfect!

have you had any experience with it? how is it? is it easy to access files on the mac drive such as music files and such?

It works well...just like you would expect for the drive to work
