    So I have a 2tb external HD and I want to back up both the mac and windows side with the same HD. When I want to partition the HD for windows it gives me these options for what to format it with.

    MS-DOS(FAT)
    ExFAT
    Free Space

    What format is best for windows backup?

    Any other tips would be great as well.

    Thanks.

    ExFAT, then format as NFTS in Windows if you want.
