will this work with windows 7?

will this work with windows 7?
Asked by: Cathy
I hope your Win7 machine is OFF the network. It's been in end-of-life status by Microsoft for about a year now. So no security fixes to patch vulnerabilities used by virus writers. Very risky to have it on the net. And no, I don't work for MS! :-) I'd just hate to see a fellow B&H customer have an infected computer. Good health to both you and your computer!

Is this formatted exfat to be able to work with both PC and Mac to transfer files?
Asked by: Ben
In the 'Overview' tab it says it's formatted NTFS for Windows. If you want to just be able to copy files to/from either Windows or Mac then reformat as exFat. But you must format to HFS+ to use it as a Time Machine drive.
