    Hey, I already did a search for this but couldn't find a specific answer. I'm going to install XP SP2 on bootcamp on Leopard, mainly to play games and to be able to use other audio applications I can't use on os x. What I would like to know is, is it possible to access from Windows to my mac harddrive? And if so, is it possible for example to load a VST that is already installed on my Mac partition onto Cubase SX3 in windows for example?

    Another thing I'm a bit worried, there is no chance that my Windows partition can somehow screw my mac partition can it?

    Thanks in advance.

    If your PC partition under Bootcamp is 32 GB or smaller and is in FAT32 format, then OSX can read it with no problems. If larger than 32 GB, then you'll have to use NTFS. OSX can't read NTFS natively.

    Hey, I just restored the windows partition and went on doing "repair disk permissions" just to see how's everything and this came up.

    What's this? is it serious? what can I do? thanks

    P.S- Another thing, on system preferences if you go to Security, "use secure virtual memory" is now enabled... I have a vague idea it used to be disabled... can anyone confirm this aswell?

    thanks in advance
