    Interesting and thx for putting the fact it weighs only 2kg and format info

    Had it in my mind this FREEAGENT produced Heavy and cumbersone configs!

    what is the universal formatting that can be seen by both PC and Mac??

    Fat32 is read write for both wally - NTFS is read only on Mac.

    Fat32 has a physical contiguous file size limit of 4 gig from memory so its no good for big things.

    I run dual mac / fat formats in seperate partitions on the one I have wally.

    Good price btw - very cheap.
