    Hi!
    You ARE able to do this, and the disk does not need to be partitioned. If you backup using the Time Machine utility on Mac OS X, it will create a file which is the back up. In my case, I have my MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and iMac all backed up to the same HDD as it saves each as an individual disk image (.dmg)

    hope this helped!
