Hello I need to backup some data ( pic documents music Videos) form a mac to an external hard drive. And I know how to do that.
then i want to use that data on a windows Pc how can i do that. If i plug the same drive on a windows will it work ? Will I be able to read that data ? I know that hard drive for mac has to be formatted as Journal and they don't work on WIndows. Do i need to convert the data before being able to read it in a windows environment ?

Thank you
