    Hello.
    My situation is very common and simple:
    I'm running Windows XP mode within 7. I want to access a physical (non-virtual) drive with decent security precautions. As stated in Windows Virtual PC Help
    So, I want read-only access from XP.
    Besides messing with rights in XP (both cumbersome and less secure), isn't there a way to declare drives as read only from 7? Frankly, I expected to find "read only" checking boxes by the drives in options>integration.
