I'm running a Mac Pro (Snow Leopard) with the boot volume split in half and XP SP2 on the second partition. When I boot into Windows, I get a drive appropriately mapped to my Mac partition, but it doesn't behave properly. Some files don't show up in Explorer or with the dir command. They are there (I can manipulate them with cmd.exe builtins like cd or type if I know the name) but other commands like copy don't work.

Is this a known issue with the Mac filesystem driver for Windows? Any workarounds?

Thanks!

Not a work around.

Purchase the Paragon NTFS driver from Paragon Software which also includes a Windows driver to read and write to HFS+, or, MacDrive 8.

Of the two, I recommend the Paragon Driver set. ($19.95)

Regards.
