    HFS in windows

    There are so many queries which is same as and the solution is you need to understand the compatibility of partitions.The problem is that when you will use the Boot Camp tool and executed into the environment of OS X,you are not eligible to edit anything on the different partition because the other OS environment can be accessed but can't be writable(Vista partition)

    The vista partition changed into the read only mode and When you would boot in Vista environment, The HFS+ volume can't be accessed for read or write operation. It is annoying and whenever you would be ready to copy something from the server,the error would be generated due to partition access.
