    Hi everyone,

    I currently use BootCamp to run XP (sadly for only one program) and have been using MacDrive to read/see my mp3's in the iTunes folder.

    Now that SnowLeopard will have HFS+ read support will I need to create a new BootCamp partition to take advantage of this. ie. remove my current boot camp partion and use the assistant to create a new partition using Snow Leopard. Seems to me that this is most likely the case.

    On the upside for me, it's quick enough for me to reinstall xp and the one program i use and it would be nice to not have to use a 3rd party app.

    thanks

    OSX has always had HFS+ support, it's what the OS is installed on.

    He means HFS+ support under Windows. with Snow Leopard you can now read and copy files from OSX while under Windows.

    you couldn't do that before SL.

    Perhaps but it's not built in..This came out when build 10A381 came out I believe.
