External Hard Drive - 2 macs

- Jan 13, 2012
I would like to know if it's possible to use an external hard drive with mutiple connectors to connect to several computers at once. I know they couldn't back up simultaneously, but could they be connected simultaneously and set to back up through time machine at different times during the day? If so, does anyone have suggestions of a hard drive that has multiple connectors?

Only if it's a NAS device, or shared via a single system (which can very easily be done).
There a plethora of VERY good reasons why this won't work (and shouldn't). I'll just mention the whole data corruption issue. That is, without any interpretive layer controlling access, you're data would be EXTREMELY susceptible to being nothing but junk. Oh and you'd never know, till you tried to use it.mike
