I just got a LaCie 1TB external hard drive and I have a MacBook Air with OS X 10.8. I often exchange movie and music files with friends that have PCs.
- If I were to partition my drive to have 250 GB formatted to FAT32, and 750 GB formatted to HFS+ to be able to exchange files with friends, can I also move files back and forth from the formatted FAT32 portion of my hard drive to the HFS+ portion of my hard drive?
- And if I can do that, would the file exchange from the differently
- have to be done on a PC,
- or could I do it on my Mac?
- Also, is the HFS+ system compatible with the old school Mac books?
I am not tech savvy, so I apologize for the verbose, non technical wording.
