    Specs:
    2 21.5" iMacs 3.06 GHz Intel Core i3 500 Gb HD OS X 10.11.5; 2 iPads iOS 9.3.4 iPhones 4s iOS 9.3.4
    Backup drives for Time Macine
    Although I have a Maxtor 320gb 2.5" drive it has backup files Winzipped from PC as well as unzipped files used to transfer to new Mac.

    If I want to use this drive I will have to reformat the drive for use with TM.

    Any advice on best compatible, e.g. Iomega eGo USB 2.0 320Gb portable?

    Take a look at what Mac Sales has to offer. They're Mac specialists and only sell the best in equipment for your Mac. Remember, that a backup drive has to be reliable - In reality, more reliable than your internal one.

    I would choose a drive that had all three ports: USB 2, FW 400, and FW 800.

    Regards.
