    I had been using Windows XP in Boot Camp for almost a year and decided to install Windows 7 instead. I am having trouble opening many files. In XP, I used MacDrive to read/write to my Macintosh HD and I have updated it to the one with Windows 7 support, but every program (games) I try to run off of it give me a network error, "Network Error: Windows cannot access (FILE PATH). Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise it might be a problem with your network..."

    This only happens with applications on the Macintosh HD.

    I copied the file onto the windows partition it runs normally, but i will run out of space soon if I have to keep doing this. Does anyone know how to fix it? Everything worked fine in XP. Thanks.

    Make sure you have macdrive installed, and try re-creating the links manually.
