    Hey All,

    I am going to be using BootCamp to run XP on my MB when it ships down. I just wanted to know if there is any way in which , when I run in either of the 2 OS's, I can share folders between XP and Mac OS X?!

    Any inputs would be great!

    OS X can read & write to the XP partition if it's formatted in FAT32. And it can only read the XP partition if it's formatted in NTFS.

    Windows can't natively read or write to the Mac OS X partition. However, with a Windows program called Macdrive, it can read and write to the Mac partition.
