    If I were to network a Western Digital Hard Drive through a NAS and partition the drive (1 for NTFS/FAT32 and 1 for Mac Journal)
    1. Can Time Machine still backup even though it is through NAS.
    2. Also, can I access the NAS hard drive (NTFS/FAT32)partition from a Windows Machine and put files on it. Thanks.

    A Windows computer could not read a Mac Formatted Disk. You'd have to make it formated to 'MS-DOS File System'.

    I'm not sure about time machine but I don't see why not.
