Is there anyway to share files in Mac OS and Vista (bootcamp)?

    Well if you're talking about sharing the files between the two operating systems on one computer, then I would think that having a separate FAT32 partition to store the shared files would be the easiest approach. But having not used it, I'm only guessing.

    USB Key or External HD is pretty much the easiest and cost effective one.

    MacDrive is the most useful.

    Creating a separate partition just to swap files, whilst possible, is pretty much a hassle. (To me anyway)

    Thanks for the response..
    I think doing another partition is too much for that..

    I will check out macdrive later..

    Yea.. I think usb drive or external is good.. But sometimes I need it when Im at school.. and I dont have a usb drive.. maybe I should get one :p

    Agreed.

    I plan on running Windows off an external hard disk, using Macdrive with it, and back up my internal hard drive to an external one, thus eliminating the need for a backup partition.

    Can you do that with the latest Bootcamp? Last I checked BC was limited to running Windows from a directly connected internal hard drive.
