    Hi,

    I have an iMac OS X 10.5 with bootcamp 2.0. I had vista installed in the bootcamp partition - had some data in it. Vista crashed yesterday and i am not able to login in any mode (safe, last know good config, et). From OS X i am able to see bootcamp partition drive - but when i select some files and copy it, it takes forever and the screen freezes with the pinwheel animation. I am not sure how to get the data out of that partition. I've got some very important data on that drive. Can you please let me know how to retreive that data from bootcamp drive.

    Thanks a million.

    Install the trial of Tuxera NTFS for Mac and see if you can access the drive:
