Share Files across Platforms

When you're running Windows on your Mac, you may want access to files on the Macintosh partition; when you're running Mac OS X, you may want access to files created under Windows. You can use any of several approaches to share files between the two platforms.

Access Windows Files from Mac OS X

When running Mac OS X, you can access files on the Windows partition by double-clicking the icon on your Desktop (or single-clicking the icon in the sidebar of a Finder window) that represents the Windows volume.

Your level of access to this volume depends on which partition format you chose.
