How do I get stuff from my other partition?
Hello ,

I have got a mac, but for the programs of my school who don't work at my Mac I made a partition with windows 7 (I did this with Bootcamp). If I am on the mac, it's easy to get stuff from my windows... but if I am on Windows, I can't find the stuff at Apple (stuff like my Music, Word-Documents, Pictures...).

So my question is: What is the best way (or is there a way) to get my stuff from Mac while I am working on the Windows.

(PS: I'm sorry for my bad English... I live in Holland )

I'm not sure if that's even possible because Mac runs its own file system (MFS) and it's not supported by Windows 7.

Assuming it is the above suggested file system problem search for a third party app that runs in Windows and reads that kind of partition. Else use your MAC OS to copy or move the files to the Windows partition, or to a separate data partition (formatted NTFS).

Boot your computer using a "Live Ubuntu" disk (you can download this from a Ubuntu website free of charge}. Copy the files you want and paste them wherever you like. Alternatively, boot up Mac and copy the files to a pendrive then reboot into Windows and paste.
