I am going to be using a couple of external hard drives but I plan to be able to sometimes plug it and work on my iMac but also plug and work on my PC.

Is there a standard format that can be read by both operating systems back and forth without creating a problem or losing data by accessing the ext hard drive with an operating system it was not prepared for?

Also, as I plan to install fusion in my iMac do I need to use a standard format that can be used by both mac and win on my iMac or I have to partition also the external hard drive? and if so, what format for each OS?

QUOTE Thanks
