    Hi,

    Just curious, I use windows on my Mac for work and I noticed that the bootcamp partition is visible on my desktop in OSX, is there a way of:

    a. hiding it

    and

    b. making it un-deletable unless you use bootcamp

    I have a fair amount of data on there and I want to make sure it does not get accidently deleted when my gf goes near the laptop ;)

    Thanks

    Mac OS X (10.5, can't be sure about 10.6) doesn't support writing/deleting on NTFS volumes, so if your Bootcamp partition is NTFS *and* you haven't installed MacFUSE and the NTFS-3G driver then you can look but not change.

    Ah ok, but I cannot move / hide it from the desktop?
