I have a new iMac with Mavericks & a 1 TB internal HDD. I am partitionning it so I can also run Windows–probably an 800MG partition for Mac and a 200MB partition for Windows.
I will be installing a new My Book Duo. Before I setup the drive I want to make sure I can do the following, and understand how to do it:
Can I partition the drive into two 2 TB partitions so that:
1. 2TBs are Mac-Formatted and set up as two 1TB RAID drives to serve as an automatic backup via Time Machine
- I like to do automatic backups for both, in a raid configuration. I am not yet sure if Time Machine will automatically backup the Windows partition.
2. The other 2TBs are formatted as exFAT and serve as a Network Drive for both Mac and PC files. Ideally, I would like to configure this partition in a 1TB RAID configuration.
Additional info: I have an older MY BOOK LIVE DUO which I use as a Network Drive, in a RAID configuration. It’s formatted FAT so files are accessible on the MAC, PC, and other devices on my LAN.
Thanks for any advice.
