I have been able to access/write to this partition from linux just fine... until I booted XP and tried to access my files and found nothing on the shared partition. "Properties" showed that data existed on the drive, but I could find nothing. I returned to Mandriva and found that my drive is locked.

    I tried to change the permissions as root, but it has locked me out. The icon for the drive in konqueror even shows a lock. What the heck is going on here? Reformatting is not an option. A large amount of data on this drive and no where to move it.

    I fixed the problem. As part of the NTFS 3g package I installed, it gave me an "NTFS Configuration Tool" in system tools. I ran this program and it showed that I had a partition that wasn't setup to mount upon boot. I set the settings to my liking and now it works perfectly. For now anyways.
