Boot Camp can be annoying. Both Windows and Mac OS X can see each other’s files, but they can’t write to the other operating system’s partition.

I use the mentioned Paragon HFS driver in order to access files and I use the command prompt to create links to my OS X partition e.g.
mklink \D "Dropbox" D:/Users/MY_OSX_USER/Dropbox
The above command will create a symlink to my Dropbox folder so I can install Dropbox on Windows and have all of the files saved to my OS X partiton as opposed to Dropbox re-downloading everything all over again, using up precious space...

A better option to FAT32 is ExFAT. This is supported by both Windows and OS X and can handle files larger than 4GB.

If you are also running Parallels, read/write is included with the app but requires the OS to be powered up.
