Hi
I have backup up my OSX Leopard running macbook using time machine onto a WD My book external HD.

Then this past weekend my macbook was stolen from my house through a window.

Now I only have a PC running XP home available. can I access my work files on the external HD when its not formatted for PC?

Is there any way I can get to those files without a Mac?

I really hope you can help me. thanks!
QUOTE Thanks

No more barriers between Windows and Mac®

currently on sale for $30 - was designed for OS X to give read and write access to NTFS volumes, but now includes MacBrowser which allows you to read and write to HFS volumes from windows.

edit: What I don't know, is if there is a way to open the sparsebundle pkg that TM creates from within Windows. I have never tried that and don't currently have a Win machine to try it on. Might want to wait to purchase it for other feedback.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
