Greetings. I have a new AEBS and a 2TB WD Elements USB HD. I have used Disk Utility to create a 500GB partition (backups) for time machine backups, and a 1.5TB partition (share) to use as shared storage between my Mac Mini and my WinXP Desktop. Both partitions are formatted with HFS+. I had planned on using Samba/CIFS to mount the share partition on both os' but for some reason I can only see and therefor mount the backup partition. Also when the drive is plugged into the AEBS the light goes orange, and Airport Utility (on windows machine) complains about the share partition. Has anyone seem this before? Or can you offer some advice on how to fix it? Is what I'm trying to achieve even possible? Does the AEBS support multiple partitions? Thanks Mike.
