I've been searching and reading tons of threads and websites, and I'm still a bit confused/unsure, so I figured I'd ask. Can the Time Capsule read/write an external disk formatted as NTFS? I do not want to do Time Machine or any other backups to this disk; it's only for shared files (documents, movies, music, pictures) between my Macbook Air and my Windows 7 desktop. It would be convenient if I didn't have to move all my files off the external and reformat it, so I would like to keep it NTFS if I could. Is the "Airport Extreme and Time Capsule do not support NTFS" (from below) just a soft limitation so we can't use an NTFS drive to try to Time Machine, or is it an absolute "YOU CAN NEVER USE AN NTFS DRIVE ATTACHED TO A TIME CAPSULE!"? I'm fine with configuring my computer so that I can read/write HFS+ in Windows, just really trying to avoid having to move stuff & reformat a 2TB hard drive! Thanks!
