I have a 1TB Passport Essential SE (USB 2.0) (version 22.214.171.124) and am currently using it for my Mac Time Machine on my MacBook Pro 7.1 (2010 mid-yr) with OS X 10.8.4. I would also like to use it as an external drive for pictures and videos from my MacBook, because they are using too much space on my laptop.
I tried to drag & drop, but it wont accept that. I tried to create a seperate folder, but there was no option in the menu bar to create a folder. Is it possible to do what I want on one Passport? I’m thinking maybe I have to wipe it out, create a partition, then put Time Machine on one side and use the other as an external drive, but I dont even know if that will work. I kinda know my way around a computer just a bit, but not much beyond an average joe…
