comment Share Firefox/Thunderbird data between W7 and Linux Mint 12 in dual boot computer
you' are right! That was my problem, I had not mounted the partition. It seems to work fine now, thank you very much for your help!

nope, it's happening also with Thunderbird (in this case it's not even asking for the profile, it just says that the program itself is already open but not responding). The weird thing is that I had even restarted my laptop...

comment Share Firefox/Thunderbird data between W7 and Linux Mint 12 in dual boot computer
thank you for your help! I managed to make it work for both using the Profile Manager. However, I got this error in Linux after a while. I closed Firefox and when opening it again, it asked to choose the profile (I had created a new one instead of overwriting the default one). I chose the profile, I got an error saying that the profile was being used, but no other Firefox window was open, so I don't know what happened... any ideas on how to solve this?

I've been checking the link you provided but I can't find the way to tell firefox where it should look for an existing profile. I can see how to create a new one, and how to move an existing one, but I can't find the option to tell firefox to load the profile info from an existing one...

thanks for your advice! I'll give this a try and see if it works. Do you know how can I make sure that the drive is mounted all the time? Is there a setting for that?

@Psycogeek yeah I just used CMD and browsed to that Temporary Internet Files folder and voilà! The file is there, and some other files too (Content.IE5, Content.MSO, Content.Word, desktop.ini,iUeetmdW, Low and Virtualized). Now that I alreay used EaseUs to shrink my partition, should I do anything about them?

@Moab oops! I shrinked the partition already... luckily everything went fine. I had saved an image of my hard drive before and made a Windows repair DVD just in case anyways. Is there any benefit of making a boot media with Easus? I can still do it just in case if it's worth it...

@Moab you were right, I had missed one step and disabled services that I shouldn't have disabled. Anyways, I tried again and the problem was exactly the same as described in my original post, complaining about the same exact file. I guess I'll give EaseUs a try and hope for the best...

@Moab I'm pretty sure I followed the directions in that link, but I can give it a try again in case I messed something up

@kreemoweet when you say a boot-time app to move stuff, you mean like the ones mentioned by Psycogeek? Or something else?

@Psycogeek yeah I've read about third party tools to do this, but I've also read of people having problems and getting errors, so I was trying to find a way using the tools that windows has. I guess that I can give one of those a try. And yeah, before trying anything I created earlier an image with windows of my C: drive, and a repair DVD to boot the windows tools and be able to restore that image. Hopefully I won't need those!

to Jeremy and @Moab thank you for your suggestions, I've tried both things without any success. When performing a clean boot, I can't perform a shrink command, I get an error. First it said that the Virtual Disk Service wan't available. I performed another clean boot activating that service, but when doing "shrink" I would get another error that the device is not available or something like that... any other thing I can try?
