    Hey guys,
    Running lion and win 7 on my 20" iMac. I have the drivers installed, so I can see the partitions no problem. I am trying to be able to write files from mac to windows and vice versa, but I can't seem to find the correct permissions in either. Is there a way to create a "windows" user on the mac so that it will allow me to write to that disk?
    Thanks in advance
    Chris

    I format my WD Passport drives in ExFAT and can read/write on both Lion (home) and W7 (work).

    <Edit: errrr, nvm probably not the best idea for a boot drive. but if you are using a separate storage drive its worth looking into>
