Beau L.
Yes.
I've had customers purchase a few of these.
Would this be able to wirelessly backup both mac's and PC's simultaneously?
Beau L.
easy to setup and user friendly.
Or is the nature of the drive not able to handle this
I have 3 macs and 2 pcs that I would like to use this for
Beau L.
Yes.
And you can even install a program called macdrive that would be able to read those files you are backing up.
Even through a windows based system.
So i could view them on a pc?
wow thats great!! Thank you so much
and any normal 3.5' drive would be compatible correct?
Any chance you know how I should format it? Or will it tell me
Beau L.
It will have software to help you format it as well.
Great, thank you very much
that is very helpful
Beau L.
And yes. All the files will show up witth that program.
You are welcome!
