I have attached this question to a previous similar post but have had no responce. The responce to this previous post (how to use one drive for MAC and Windows) pointed to article 3865 which indicates that whole drive should be formatted in FAT32. I would prefer not to use this - I am lead to believe it is not as reliable as newer file systems and I have found MAC Time Machine to be quite temperamental so much prefer to us the proper MAC format. I want to use one 2TB My Passport drive to backup my MAC (10.8.2) and my wife’s Windows 7 laptop. Can I partition and format the drive - approx 1TB as OSX Extended journled and another partition approx 1TB as NTFS.
Note Previous experience with partitioning external drive using ‘MAC disk utilities, partition’ was not effective?
Would appreciate your guidance
