Vista and 2k pro, partition problem

Posted: 06-12-2006, 12:29 PM
Since I installed vista beta I cannot access my files on same harddrive that
the vista is installed from w2k pro.

2k shows only one partition on that drive, but there are 2 and says that
drive is not formatted if i try to browse it.

In vista all partitions shows just fine and I can access the files.

Is w2k's and vistas NTFS something different and 2k can't understand the
partitions?

That partition contains most of my installed software, so it is quite vital
to get 2k work with it again.

Maybe you didn't post your statements and questions enough times? Why would
anyone think that a new NTFS that supports transactions would be compatible
with Windows 2000, especially since there have been two major OS revisions
in between? Windows 2000 has been in a lower support category for several
months.

Hey

NTFS revision has changed a bit while years passed so nearest are xp and
vista. To find more information about differences of NTFS revisions, use
google ie. search engines. If you need to move files etc. do it via Vista
since it seems to support older revisions of NTFS.

It's not supposed NTFS version of Vista is the same as XP (as I read on
these newsgroups)? Then, from Win2k I can browse XP partitions, so
what's the difference if I want to browse Vista's partition from Win2k?

Please respond to questions technically and not with other question.
