I just bought a 3TB Backup Plus for Desktop (PC format) to go with my new Mac mini and existing Windows machines. I'd like to use it for Mac backups, as well as sharing files among other machines. I'm thinking along the lines of a 2TB HFS+ partition for either Time Machine or third party Mac backup, and a separate 1TB partition for file sharing.
So the basic questions are:
I've already looked at the pinned thread on common issues at the top of the forum, and in particular there's a link called "more info" that goes to the GoFlex forum, with a set of instructions for partitioning, but it seems dated.
Any advice or suggestions will be appreciated.
PS. I should add that the Windows systems are Win 7 and XP only.
