    I have:
    1. windows pc (2011) with W7;
    b. iMac with OS (2012)
    c. time machine disk (Apple, 2TB)

    I want to use disk for backup windowspc and imac. The latter no problem. First however huge problem: it doesnot work. I have tried several programs.

    What do I need to do in order to back my windows pc up on the Aplle disk?

    Why don't you just buy an external drive that has 500 GB to 1 TB storage and backup everything from your Win7 PC to that. Very simple, straight forward. And the external drives aren't that expensive any more.

    Hi,

    Yes, that is a possibility. It is however not what I want. I have had many drives and the whole purpose of buying a big one is getting everything on one drive in my network.

    When I bought this I was told that this was possible as well as easy!
