We have two computers, an old MacBook Pro running El Capitan and a 2014 Mac mini running High Sierra. They each need about 600-700 GB to back up.
I purchased a 2 TB external drive and was just planning on using it with a lot of space left over by partitioning for other use. However, now I read I can possibly use it on both through the router and networking.
My questions are:
- Can I?
- I think partitioning would be best ... approx. 1 TB each, but will it be okay to have two different OS working on it?
- I assume I have to format as HFS+, but doesn't High Sierra now use a new file system?
