Lets see if there is anyone out there who can help me. I feel kind of dumb asking what should be a simple question. Well actually its help me help my GF, she recently bought an external hard drive for her laptop (dell) Now I can set this up for her dell all fine and dandy, but it get a little complicated. For starters, her dell is not long for this world (meaning its going to die soon) and she is considering replacing it with an apple when it dies. Now I made certian that the hard drive that she bought would run on a PC and an Apple, the question is do I have to do anything special to install it on one for later use on the other? Things such as Fat32 vs NTFS (sp?) The hard drive will be used as extra storage space and when the time comes a way to move files to the new computer whatever it maybe, but there is a good chance it will be an apple. And I will read the intruction next time I see her this weekend. Thanks for any help guys.
