Time to backup my iMac, perhaps in advance of upgrade to OS X Mavericks.
For my previous Windows PC I had an external HDD that I made backups to. The disc is about 1TB in total which is partitioned into three NTFS formatted partitions:
Untitled: 800 Gb which is a bootable Windows XP disc that contains the main backups, 500 Gb free
Pictures: 100 Gb
Music: 100 Gb
The requirement for 'Untitled' is unlikely to change as I no longer have any of the windows computers.
So my question is whether this disc can be made to work as a time machine external hard drive for the iMac or do I need to buy another one? the iMac has a 750 Gb HDD but only 250 Gb of that is used. So could I divide the Untitled partition and use say 400 Gb of that or is this a bad idea?
I am no computer expert so please bear this in mind with replies!
