How to set up single external hard drive to work in MAC and PC?
Posted on 2004-09-23
I just bought a Seagate 200 GB external hard drive which I plan to use on a MAC for digital video storage, but I would also like to use it with my PC at home to back up my files, for games, and for additional storage. I know I can partition the hard drive for whatever size I need each to be, but the question is what should the hard drive file system be formatted to in each the PC partition and the MAC partition, NTFS or FAT32, or does the drive need to be partitioned at all? The OS for the PC is XP Pro and for the MAC is OS X.
