I am looking for a big external hard drive to backup my and the wife's data. I'm Mac (Lion) and she is PC (XP Home Basic).
Can you recommend a drive? I was looking at this one WD 3TB
Also, how do I set it up so it works with my Time Machine and her PC? Most of these drives mention reformatting for mac, but I will want Mac and PC partitions working at the same time. I have also heard mention of formatting as Fat32, but XP has a file size limit for that?
Thanks for your help-
