    Win 10 & WinXP Pack 3

    I am running Win 10 Pro (Insider Preview) & WinXP Pack 3 on the same PC using different SSD. Within the PC are two other HDDs of 2TB each
    Recently a strange thing happened. I was using WinXP & imported about 300 pics into one of the internal HDD. There I did some editing & created 100 pics in another folder for uploading to Facebook. Then I turn off the PC. Couple of hours later I startup the PC using the Win 10 SSD & I open my Facebook. Then I proceed to upload the 100 pics done earlier but I couldn't find the folder containing the 100 pics. In fact the whole folder containing the 300+ pics disappeared. Then I open my photo browser & couldn't find the folder anywhere. I reboot the PC using the WinXP SSD but the whole folder remain missing.
    One week later I did another photo project in WinXP with 120 pics in a folder. Then I did an HD video project using Pinnacle Studio & I saved the project in the internal HDD. Then I reboot with Win 10. I installed the same Pinnacle Studio video editing software in Win 10. When I open the software I open the project in the internal HDD but nothing appeared - only the header can be seen. I used to do this way in Win7 because I find that the rendering is so much faster in Win7 than in XP. Then I look for the folder with the 120 pics which I done earlier but I couldn't find it - disappeared again.
    Now I realized that anything done in XP can't be open in Win 10 but my internal HDDs contained tens of thousands of photos & videos done long time ago & able to open in Win 10. Probably it only affect those recently created projects.
    For those who are running the same two OS please take note

    Now it got worse. Last night when I boot up with WinXP I move about 200Gb of videos from one HDD to another. Now the whole lot disappear in Win 10. That means I can't share HDDs with both OS. I think have to connect them externally

    Back in June when I inserted a 64Gb usb drive to my PC while running Win 10 Insider Preview there's a message saying that the usb drive need to be scanned to resolve some problems. After scanning I open the drive but there's nothing there - my 50Gb of data disappeared & all these were created in WinXP.
    So those WinXP users out there take note about this not to share your data from WinXP with Win 10
