I just received my seagate portable hard drive, & it is formatted for NTFS, an online pdf document says it needs to be HFS to use as a backup on a mac.
should I use disk utility to format it? & to what? HFS? or HFS+ or HFS journedled? in disk utility I notice the main mac hard drive is mac os journeled extended.
I have used these instructions to format my other hard drives I found; http://macs.about.com/od/application...ilformat_4.htm
should I use this method on my seagate?
it seems it has an installer to install NTFS software to use it formatted as NTFS on a mac.
do I have to do this formatting separately 1st before using paragon snapshot for mac?
