If I connect an external HD through the USB out, can both macs and PCs backup to it?

I wouldn't need to access the PC backup from the mac or the mac backup from the PC. I just wasn't sure if formatting wise it would work to backup both a mac and a PC on the same external HD.

  • Both Macs and Windows computers can both use the USB hard drive on an AirPort Extreme. For another option, you can use a USB hub and more than one drive - one per computer - for additional safety.
