I just used the Boot Camp Assistant to create a 180GB partition to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Everything works fine. I would like to know if when I am booted in Windows 7, can I transfer large files over 5GB from the Boot Camp (Windows 7) partition over to my internal Macintosh HD? Or vice versa when I am booted in OS X?


I just bought a LaCie 2TB D2 Quadra V2B 7200rpm external hard drive. Is there a way for me to format this drive so that I can also transfer large files over 5GB to it or from it between the internal Macintosh HD or the Boot Camp (Windows 7) partition?


I'm just looking for the best and safest option to move large GB files between the internal Macintosh HD and the Boot Camp (Windows 7) partition.


I have a 27" iMac 2010 model i7 Quad Core running OS X 10.6.8


Thank you,


iMac (27-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
