As things are at the moment, when I open in Vista this is what “Computer” indicates:-
Boot C – 72.8 Gb free of 268
Windows 7 – 17.1 Gb free of 29.2
Back up M - 252 Gb free of 465
My “User” file is on Boot C
Back up is on a second hard disc and Windows 7 is a partition on the main disc.
When I open in Windows 7 “Computer” shows:-
Windows 7 C - 17.1 Gb free of 29.2
Boot (D) - 74.2 GB free of 268
Back up (E) 252 Gb free of 465
What I want to do is get Windows 7 to look to Boot D for my “User” file and share it with Vista.
I don't know is this is possible, but if it is not, then dual booting is less attractive.
I would suggest to you that you need to boot into Vista and right click on your "My Documents" folder and manually set the permissions to "share" with everyone.
Then boot into 7 and you can create a shortcut to the "My Documents" folder in your "user" in Boot D, to make access to it easier in 7.
Please let us know if you need any help with this?
