    Maybe not so much through time machine but just as a disk I can see when in windows. Im using it with 8.1 with Boot Camp

    I don't think so.
    I use Clonezilla for my Bootcamp backups.

    No but winclone can backup the entire windows install on the OSX side which will get backed up by tm.

    If it was a Windows PC network then perhaps to the TC. Windows backup needs an NTFS drive to backup, the TC of the OP will be formatted in HFS+ for TM backups so a winclone image to the OSX boot drive is the easiest option for TC to automatically backup.

    Winclone sounds like the way to go, thanks to all!

    Couldn't he create a partition for each?

    I don't run windows on my Mac so I could be totally wrong of course.

    Nope it formats the whole TC volume in hfs+ for its uses just like TM does for external drives.
