    I have a two part question. First, does anyone have experience using the Readyshare feature of the Netgear 37xx routers with Time Machine? I've told Time Machine to recognize network drives but it's still not working...

    Also, what's the best way to share a Time Machine drive? Should I format a 2TB drive in two 1TB partitions, for instance, and just ask each computer to use a different drive, or keep the partition whole and share it in the same way you might if you had one drive connected to an iMac and used that same drive to backup your MacBook Pro (I've done this before myself, and it worked really well).

    Thanks for any help.

    Unfortunately, it appears that you cannot use the Ready Share with Time Machine because it does not recognize the HFS+ file system as mentioned in this post from another thread.

    The answer to your second question can be found here:

    Can I back up 2 or more Macs to the same place?
