Sorry to Mods, but I realized I posted in the wrong board originally. I posted in the hardware forum when this is clearly a software issue. If you are going to close a thread please close the other one. I am trying to back up my FAT32 drive (shared between OS X and Windows) with Time Machine, but it's listed under "Excluded" in the options. The Windows (NTFS) partition is also listed as "Excluded" but I can remove it by selecting it and pressing "-" However, the FAT32 drive has the "-" greyed out. I am trying to back up into an external HD with HFS+ Time Machine partition in it... is there any way to include the FAT32 partition in my backups? Thanks a bunch!
