    Hi all

    I just got a external HD for the backups and other files. I am wordering if there is any way to share the HD partition through the network and tell to my MacBookPro to backup on that HD in the Windows PC.

    In other words... I want my Windows XP to work as a server for my Time Machine Backup


    Any idea?

    I think TM needs an HFS+ formatted drive, IIRC.
