Hi Badderup - Applications, utilities, disk utility. The drive will need to be formatted as fat 32 so as to be seen by both Mac and pc. Then create a partition, to whatever size you like. After having done that you should be able to use the external drive in both computers."Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."
