"The so-called "Zune Hard Drive Hack" that everyone is talking about does *NOT* give you direct access to the hard drive !!!! In reality the true hard drive looks a lot different than what you see in Windows Explorer. What you are seeing in Windows Explorer is a filtered (fake) view. For most casual Zune owners, the difference doesn't matter. For people seriously trying to access/hack the Zune, it is very significant."
ZunePet, as poster over at Zunerama, has discovered that the performing the hard drive hack to allow direct access to Zune's hard drive is really a filtered view of the hard drive. The poster also has a method to allow complete access to the hard drive, including two separate partitions. This information is only relevant if you are trying to hack the Zune's software, and really doesn't come into play if you want to use your Zune as a portable storage device. Be sure to check out this tip if you really want to see the contents of your Zune's drive.
