View Full Version : Parallels Unable to Access Drive?

May 18, 2010, 09:20 AM
I am new to Macs and new to Parallels. I just bought a MacBook Pro and I have 3 partitions setup. 1 for OS X, 1 for Windows 7 and 1 for data, such as Music, Photos, etc...I installed Parallels and it works great but an issue I am having is when I load Windows 7 via Parallels, it will not allow me to access the OS X partition or more importantly, the data partition through Windows 7. However, if I use Boot Camp to boot into Windows 7 I can access the drives just fine. Parallels says that I need to format the drives to view them.

Is there something I am missing? How can I view the drives via Parallels?
