    Hey, I just installed NTFS-3G so that i can move files from Mac to Windows, and when i installed it, i could see my Bootcamp partition in finder. However, when I started parallels with windows, I could no longer see my Bootcamp partition in Finder as another harddrive. Is this normal?

    Found It.
    If anybody want to know, you have to go to:
    Users/yourusername/documents/parallels and you will se your virtual machine, which is called "something".pvm.
    Right click it, and select "Show Package Contents".
    Select windows disks and you will see C drive.

    I made an alias and copied it to my desktop.
    Is alias like shortcut in windows?

    The same thing will happen if you use VMware Fusion as well. When you try to boot a VM using your bootcamp partition, that drive is "mounted" in the VM, so you can't really access it that way. Then again, when you have it running in the VM, why would you need to anyway? Why not just access it from inside the VM and copy whatever you need since it's already running?
