Hey guys, wow it's been a long time since I've posted anything here. I'm trying to working something out and so far none of my research has helped. I have a 1 TB external HDD that is currently formatted for Mac (extended journal... or something like that) in which I keep things like my Aperture Library (40+ gigs), backups of music, video files (50+ gigs) - all of which won't fit on my puny 60 GB hard drive that sits in my MacBook. Problem is, when I would like to access Aperture, I cannot unless I have my external HDD plugged in, so that it may access the library (same thing happens with my Flip HD Video program). I've recently finished building a HTPC running Win 7 and it hooked to my plasma in the living room. What I would like to do is somehow put this external HDD on the network (either directly through my router, or somehow through the Win 7 machine) so that when I'm working on my MacBook at home, I don't have to plug in my external to access Aperture and other files in it - but rather be connected to it as long as my internet connection is fine. Also, it would be super dandy if I would be able to access the external through the Win 7 machine as well - but I figure because of the difference in formatting, this may not be possible. Any thoughts or help on this situation would be aweeessssome.
