I am about to buy a new macbook pro, and have been looking at getting soemthing like a Western Digital My Passport to allow me to store files and also for backing up the files on the laptop. I just wanted to pick the brains of more tech minded people and get advise on here first!
Am I right in understanding that I can partition the drive so that not all of it is used by apples 'timemachine'? As I would also like t be able to store some files that I dont necessarily need to access all the time on the laptop.
Also, I have seent hat there are two 'versions' on this drive. I say 'versions' as it seems they are just formatted ready for macs, rather than being different drives? Is this right, or do have have the wrong end of the stick? Or is it much less hastle to get a mac 'version' ?
Thanks in advance to all those who help! :)
