Nov 15, 2006

Wife has new mbp and we'll be attaching two 500gb fw connected Lacie drives for backup. These drives will never be connected to a PC.

?Which file system should be used on the drives, the "mac" file system (whatever it's called), or (ugh) FAT32? Mac I would think, but not being a Mac expert I thought I would ask. TIA

This space reserved for a clever phrase, as soon as I find one that hasn't already been taken.
