Hi smart geeks, I have a question I was hoping you could help me with. I am running windows 7 on a mac via bootcamp. I am trying to access my office 2007 files (.xlsx, .pptx) from my bootcamp partition in the windows users/.../documents directory. When I open up the office 2007 documents in Office 2008 for the mac it only brings up the files in read only mode. Is this due to windows 7 security / ownership settings? If so how do I shut them off so the Mac can gain access to all my document files on the bootcamp partition.

Thanks for any help or insight
