awawada: thank you so much.

Once I formatted the USB external hard drive as MAC can I backup another MAC laptop on the same hard drive or that hard drive is designated to only one specific laptop ?

Thank you Awawada. I was able to backup my Mac following the instruction you provided with not problem. Now in the same external drive I can also backup my other Mac Air as long as I have enough space correct ?
