Hi,

i am new here.. sorry if my question is lame.

I just need to backup some data files from mac (pics/vids/texts/diskimage) to
to some place externally for few hrs. since the size is bit larger like 25gb.
i dont have an immediate external source to save.

is it possible to move that much of file to an PC through ethernet or usb connected directly?
i am nto going to use those backup files in windows or view it.

after i have to move it back again to mac.

is it possible?

thks in advance
Joe

You can create a 'sparse image' over a network and store it on the PC, sure, as long as the destination PC is formatted as something other than FAT32.

i didnt get u , you mean the destination drive in the pc should be of NTFS format?

I mean it has to support large files, > 4GB, which means NTFS, typically.
