    I'd say its safer to use a volume that's formatted HFS+, especially because its your backups and you don't want to a chance with it

    I didn't think it was possible to use TM on a non-HFS+ formatted drive....

    You are correct, Time Machine cannot back up non-HFS+ formatted drives, nor can it back up TO a non-HFS+ formatted drive.
