I have noticed on specifications that some list what os they are compatible with. If the OS is not listed does that mean the usb HD will not work for example MAC. If it does not say its MAC compatible would it not work with MAC as well as Windows?
From my understanding can I not just create 2 partitions and use 1 for mac and 1 for windows?
Also I have noticed that some HD say that they have a feature to support time machine etc. Does this require certain software from the manufacterer itself and comes with the HD when bought or can you get this software from Internet if so I am looking for something that would backup from Windows and Mac. From windows it should back up certain folders compressed same with MAC? Is it possible to do incremental backups. This is for personal use not industry.
