"MacDrive Standard 9.0 causes problems with Win-7 drives"
Version: MacDrive Standard 188.8.131.52
Works well when it is working. I did not encounter any problems viewing file contents on my PC's main "C" partition or any of my external Mac OS X drives.
After ejecting my external Mac OS drive and attaching my external Win-7 drive I started having issues. (I use the external Win-7 drive for my PC's periodic file backup.) When I opened Windows Explorer, and right-clicked on the Win drive to see how full it was, none of my files appeared. Then I got an error pop-up that MacDrive needed to restart. It continued to restart multiple times. This same scenario reoccurred with my internal drives "D" partition. I tried deactivating MacDrive and the problem persisted. I rebooted and tried deactivating MacDrive and still the same problem. Finally I uninstalled MacDrive to regain normal Win-7 drive access.
If you have only one Windows internal drive/partition and use MacDrive with external Mac OS X external drives you may be okay. I wish MacDrive worked with out interfering with my additional Windows drives/partitions.
