    I am pretty new to Macs and I am about to go purchase an external HDD for my new MBA. I am planning to use it for Time Machine backups and to store my video collection. Is there a format that will allow me to read/write on both my Windows and Mac laptop without the 4gb file limit of Fat32? I have a few .iso files that are too big to fit on a Fat32 drive.

    Thank you very much, I was not aware of this format.
