Re: Access windows partition on mac os x and mac on windows

Latest Google releases a implementation called MacFUSE which makes it possible to use any FUSE (File-system in USErspace) file systems in Mac. And the most useful FUSE is the NTFS-3G Read/Write Driver, which ables system to load NTFS with read and write capability. This is truly the greatest news for dual booting Mac OS X and Windows XP or Vista.

Without going into great deal of technical details and compilation of the source code, I found out users around Internet already came up with binary version (in DMG) of MacFUSE and ntfs-3g, ready to install . Here are the instructions on how to use MacFUSE and NTFS-3G. It does require a little of administration skills as it involves running commands in the Terminal.

i thing you can try Time machine backups that wil work i am not sure or you can try MacDrive 7 for reading HFS volumes ,with this you can read and write your HFS+ volume! I even played back movie files, and it worked fine.
