    I have a 5.1 Mac Pro, and I wanted to use it as a hard drive storage for another windows 10 pc.

    How do I do this? Enable file sharing? Connect via Ethernet?

    Is it ok if the hard drive is windows formatted within the Mac Pro? I only have to access it via windows

    Yeah make sure the computers are on the same network. Turn on file sharing in OS X. Make sure you enable the SMB method, because that's what Windows will want to see.

    Doesn't matter how it is formatted.
