Hey all, I have a USB external drive that I used with my WinXP machine before it died. I'm replacing the hard drive on the Win machine, just to have a Win machine around. But I want to use the external HD to backup my Win machine and my Mac. Currently, the USB HD is formatted in NTFS, so my PB 12 can't write to it. I'd like to set up this drive with two partititions, one for the Win and one for the PB, for backups. So a couple of questions arise: 1. Is it possible to format partitions of the same disk in different formats, such as NTFS for one and FAT32/HFS+ for the other? 2. Since I have already got backup data for the Win laptop on the USB HD, would it be possible to create a partition and then format the partition intended for the Mac to an appropriate format? That is, I don't really want to reformat the whole thing, if I don't have to. Can I create a dual format partitioned drive without entirely reformatting? (Assuming the answer to the above question is affirmative.) Thanks.
