    hi all, i have Macbook Pro & iMac: Can I use one TM drive for both backups? I am thinking 1tb. or should i get two drives? I have to do a backup before I go shopping in tland for drives, so if I did the above unmentionable somehow, it would just be while i am away. thx...

    Yes, you can.

    A folder for each system will be created on the drive.

    U rock! I'll give it a go and only write back to complain if it does not work:)

    btw, any chance of doing it over the network...nah! sounds too complicated:))
