Sup all. I need an external HD to backup my desktop (running Windows) and laptop (unibody MacBook running OS X, no FireWire so it's gotta be USB ) Firstly, I've been looking at the Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1TB & wondering if it's decent for an external HD (if it isn't feel free to suggest an alternative). Secondly, if I decided to partition 500GB of the drive for Windows backup & 320GB of the drive for OS X & the rest for Misc files... would this be safe? I ask because the old external HD I Had (made my AcomData, it was their cheapest one) I had multiple partitions on, and it died after a few months use. I'm not sure whether to chalk that up to the multiple partitions or the fact that it was a piece of shit... that's why I'm hoping one of you will be able to answer this question of mine.
