I just got a new 1TB Fantom Green Drive from MacMall and it's apparently formatted with FAT32. It's going to be connected to my iMac and used as a drive to archive an assortment of graphic files (TIF, JPG, GIF, PNG, etc.) plus some old HTML files, and a dozen or so backed up DVDs which are probably larger than the FAT32 4 Gig limit. My PC had multiple smaller drives and my objective is to reduce clutter and eventually dump the separate PC and install Windows on my mac using Parallels or VMware Fusion. There's a readme with the Fantom that states you should either leave it as is, or reformat it with something called HFS+ which is new to me. Should I do that (and if so are there anything I should know about doing that), or is there a way to format it as a mac/OS X drive and still have the option of Windows looking at that drive down the road? For the moment at least... I'd like to just move all this stuff onto the drive and be able to grab stuff when needed. Sorry if this sounds a bit confusing.
