    I am using Beta2 of Vista via MSDN.

    I currently have 3 partitions on my hard drive, 1 for XP Pro, 1 for Vista
    and 1 for data. The data drive (E:) I want to be able to access and use from
    both XP and Vista.

    In XP all I do is point 'my documents' at the root of my data drive and all
    is good, however in Vista I cannot seem to do this and I can get read access
    to my data drive which is not very useful. I could do a blanket permission
    change on my data drive but I would like to understand if there is a better

    Thanks in advance.
