    Hi all,

    Was wondering, on the Intel Macs, is there an easy way to be able to access both Windows files and Mac files? Macdrive seems like it is 1 way (Windows to Mac, but not vice versa).

    Thanks

    I'm wondering too. I can't find out any way to access Windows files from your Mac, only Mac files from Windows. (This is relating to Boot Camp)

    again - try Parallels - its a much more elegant solution (no repartitioning the drive) - and after installing the "parallels tools" in WinXP - you get access to a "Parallels Shared Folder" on your desktop. (so both OS-X and XP can access the same data) - I did this on Macbooks recently and it works great.

    (if using two different machines - look at www.foldershare.com - they have a Mac and PC client and its free - replicates data between machines)
