    I currently have windows installed via boot camp. In OS X I can access the windows partition and in windows I use macdrive to access the mac partition. However when I run windows in vmware fusion I cannot access the other partition from either OS, so I was thinking of creating a 3rd partition to use sort of like a bridge between the 2 OS's. I am not sure about how to do this this but I think I'd would need to be FAT32 so that both OS's could read and write to it.

    So in conclusion:

    1. Is it possible?
    2. If so then how do I do it (do I just use disk utility to create a FAT32 partition or what?)

    Departition hard drive

    Hey - I have a MacBook Pro with Mac OSX - I partitioned the hard drive and put windows 2007 on it. I want to remove the partition - is this possible? How do I do it without losing everything on the Mac side of my hard drive?
