setting up to back up files for two separate users

How can I set up my new My Passport Essential SE (for Mac) with two separate areas for backups so that I can back up MY documents/photos/music/etc. in one section and I can back up my HUSBAND's documents/photos/music/etc. in another. We use separate user accounts on our iMac. So do I need to partition (or whatever) or what? I'm new to this - please keep replies simple. Thanks.

Re: setting up to back up files for two separate users

Anyone? I'd love some help with this so that I can figure out how to back up both my husband's and my own files without overwriting each other.

 

Please respond. Thanks.

I don't know much about Macs or what you are using for backup software. I think partitioning the drive would be a good idea. That's just my opinion, that might make **bleep** easier to avoid overwriting.
