    Just got my new Mini with Leopard installed and have a 500gb external drive that I would like to use as a backup drive. Will Leopard allow me to write/read from a NTFS drive ? If not, how can I change/format the external drive to let me do this. I may get Parallels and install Windows NT in the future, so that is a consideration as well. Thanks in advance.

    To change the format, open Disk Utility with it plugged in, choose Erase on the drive, and then choose another format.

    Paragon can be used to give NTFS capabilities...
