      Sorry for the late response -- I rarely check those messages on Macrumors.

      Using one disk for backing up both Windows and OS X will be a problem, because the only shared file system that both can actually write to is FAT32, and that has several restrictions. However, you could install the shareware MacDrive in your Windows installation, that will allow Windows to also write on OS X partitions/file systems.

      For me personally, this whole OS X and Windows 7 thing has reached a point where I am seriously thinking about dumping OS X altogether. I make my living in a Windows and Linux environment, and based upon my experience, OS X is by no means a better platform than either Windows or Linux. It just costs more, and I am no longer willing to pay the Apple premium. I still like their hardware a lot - Macs are great Linux and Windows machines.

      Hello Winni, you were nice enough to post a response the other day to my question on keyboards for Windows and OSX on an iMac. I've read some of your other posts and see you have a lot to say regarding W7 on a Mac in general. I'm wondering if there is anything I need to know regarding backup disk formatting for backing up both Mac and Windows files to a single HD. I would be using Parallel 6. Thanks in advance.
