I have two pc lap tops and an iMac and am having trouble getting things to back up on the mac. I REALLY REALLY need to get some of these files off of the mac and onto the other external but it's saying I need to do a reformat??? How the hec do I do that and I'd really like to know if I can use the external between pc and mac? Do I have to have one for both? If so, the files I backup from the mac, how can I get them on my PC? That's where I need them right now!!!! BIG TIME!!
