    I want to create a Bootcamp partition for Win7, and a 3rd partition on the internal HDD for Data. After testing so far, ExFAT is the only format that I've found that both Win7 and OSX can read/write. Is there any reason this setup wouldn't work? Any recommended alternatives? Thanks.

    I found a while ago this article about a very similar setup to the one you mention:

    Apparently it is a bit tricky to do, so I ended up not doing it myself because (even after a lot of research) I could not find all the info I wanted so I bought an external Hard Drive instead since my MBP has only 320 Gb (MBP 13" early 2011).

    Here is my original question about the same issue (no replies):

    Hope this helps a bit.
