    im planning to use time machine to back up my files pag napalitan ko na yung hdd ng MB ko....thinking of getting a 1tb mybook for this, i just have one question, can i partition the drive into 2 (GUID for time machine & NTFS for other storage), well actually i know this is possible but the other half would be in FAT format....but i'd prefer NTFS for my windows back ups...what is the best way to do this? thanks!

    Should be easy really. Simply hook up your MyBook to your Windoze PC and format the proper partition (make sure it's the right one) to NTFS.
