    Specs:
    iMac G4 800 MHz, 512 MB, 60 GB Hard Drive, Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard
    Potential Time Machine backup drive?
    I have an iMac G4 (outdated, I know, don't judge) running Leopard 10.5.8 on a 60 GB hard drive (really only 55 GB). I also have a 320 GB 2.5" hard drive sitting on a shelf, which I'm not currently using, but I am planning on buying a USB or Firewire/USB enclosure for it, though probably the former, because they're cheaper.

    If I get an enclosure for this hard drive, and plug it into my iMac, will it work fine for Time Machine? Thanks for your help!

    It'll work if you format it to the Mac OS Journaled file system.
