Does "backing up" read/write data to a hard drive?
I'd like to backup both my Mac (using Time Machine) & my PC to a single 3 TB Seagate external hard drive using the USB port on my wireless router.
If this is relevant, the router supports the following file system types for full read/write access: • FAT16 • FAT32 • NTFS • NTFS with compression format enabled • Ext2 • Ext3 • Ext4
The router supports the following file system types with read-only access: • HFS • HFS+
Seagate provides software (Paragon) to enable a Macbook to read & write in NTFS, but also says that installing the software prevents backing up with Time Machine. If you are familiar with Paragon, do they provide an alternative backup method to Time Machine?
