I am having a lo of trouble with this. After being assured by Finale that my music files would transfer from Windows to Mac no problem, I installed Finale for Mac on the Mac side. My Finale files were created on a PC and are on the Windows side. I can drag the folder with all my Finale files from the Windows side to Mac side, but when I do that, only the files that are not in my many separate subfolders come through. Am I going to have to open each folder full of music, create a new folder for that music on the Mac side, and transfer folder by folder? Or is there a way I can get these files transferred to Mac in one operation? (this is probably my first of many, many questions) Thanks for any help or advice. Sue S

It's really a Parallels question, not a Finale one. You may need to work on it from that side.

When I was using Parallels, I don't remember having any problems moving the data, but that was quite a few years ago. You might consider copying the files to a thumb drive, or transferring them via Dropbox, or something similar.

I use Boot Camp to boot into Windows 7.
You can use one USB flash druve formatted as FAT for your all files, so every time you boot in OS X or Win you will have them. Or a cloud service.
