    Good day everyone,

    I have the following setup at home
    one macbook pro 15" which i use for my personal use
    one desktop pc which runs windows 7 which i use for work
    both of the above are connected to a router, wirelessly through an apple airport extreme.

    I intend to plug an external HDD to the airport extreme so I can backup from both machines my data and other files.

    I know that once the drive is connected it will probably be shown in the finder on the macbook.
    What i dont know is how I can access the HDD from the windows PC
    Is there a set of settings that can be done through the air port extreme to allow access to it?

    Your help/advise will be appreciated

    Thank you

    I have a similar problem, how can I connect my windows 7 computer to the network drive on the airport extreme?
