    I just bought a Western Digital 120GB and it came with an installation CD with Retrospect Express , which from what I am reading is a back up software. I was wondering do I have to install this software if I already have the apple backup. I'm pretty used to using the apple backup already. Do I have to install it to use the HD. Disadvantages, Advantages? Help Please.

    It was formatted with something for windows already on the disc. The directions said if you were using Mac OS to erase the HD first and then install the software from the CD
