Hi ho! So, I've been set an interesting task, and i thought i'd find out if it can be done.. The machine is a MBP, with XP on it CO bootcamp. The user requires The ability to work on data contained in a folder/on a partition accessible from both OSX and XP.. The folder/partition to be automatically syncronized MAC-NETWORK-MAC when user connnects to network; whether they've booted into XP or OSX I was thinking that a FAT32 partition .e.g SHARED_DRIVE with a folder called e.g. DATA, could serve this purpose easily. It would show on both OSX and Windows side, and i know i can easily set up the folder sync permissions on the XP side. How would i ensure that it would sync when the user connects to the Windows network and boots OSX rather than XP...? Also, what's the deal with the .ds_store, ._.temporaryitems and trashes - is it easy to stop that stuff from being generated?
