Hey there, I understand your concerns.

1.-The drive USB interface is not related to the Operating System version. If the computer has the drivers and the propper USB 3.0 controllers it it should work in Windows XP. 

2.-Yes, you can use the drive until it is completely full.

3.-Please see how to use the drive in the link below.
