Can you be more specific? Are they all in the same computer? And you say you have Unix, Linux, and Windows on a total of two drives... what Unix is it?

Hard drives have filesystems that are created on the drive.

Many UNIX kernels, linux for example, allow you to compile drivers that support many different filesystems. Others, do not.

Windows for example, only allow you to mount (is mount the right words in Windows??) file systems that are exactly what MS wants you to mount. This certainly does not include all the myriad of file systems that some UNIX systems allow you to mount.

Linux and many other UNIX kernals, support all the Windows file systems. For example, many Linux users mount many kinds of filesystems, including MS filesystems, such as VFAT, etc.

The questions that need to be answered are pretty straight forward:

(1) What is the MS filesystem you have?

(2) What is the UNIX filesystem you have?

(3) What is the OS you have?

When you answer these questions, it is possible to provide more detailed technical answer.
