    I have two SATA drives connected to a PC right now in an OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro. I'm trying to phase out this PC, and basically all it does for me now is serve this external on the network.

    I'd like to move these drives to my airport extreme and host from there instead.

    How complicated will this be, given that they are NTFS drives? Right now I access as shared drives over the network. How will this change after being hosted by the AEBS?

    ...what about getting another drive and formatting it FAT32 and transfer the data over to that, Mac's can read/write off FAT32...

    If you can't lose it you need to have a backup anyway, so just restore from the backup onto the newly reformatted drives.
