I have install Windows 7 Beta as a dual boot with XP. XP is on partition C; and 7 on a newly created partition G:. In XP widows Explorer I can see G: and access files or copy files from C: to G:. However in 7 I cannot see the XP partition and windows 7 is shown as being on C:. How can I access files on the XP volume?

Boot to Windows 7 and right click "Computer" and click "Manage". Select "Disk management" on the left and you should see the missing drive in there. Right click on your XP partition and simply give the drive a letter and it should fix your problem.
