A first time MAC user as of yesterday, and very happy.
I was previously using a PC hooked up to a Seagate FreeAgent external drive, but have now found out that it won't work on the MAC. Bit of research reveals that it's due to the file system i.e. MAC doesn't read/write onto NTFS. So I'm thinking of hooking both computers up with Ethernet (wish me luck!) to transfer the backed up files onto the MAC. If this is successful I'm looking for an external drive to use on the MAC that, like the Seagate, carries auto back-ups in the background for files I select.
My question is - assuming that the new drive has to be FAT32, I'm reading that there is a limit to file sizes that this supports. Is this right? I download movies and sometimes have large files i.e. 4GB.
Can anyone allay my fears or point me in the direction of a good external drive that does what I need?
