I plan to backup data from my Mac and PC onto an external drive - this will be an HFS+ formatted drive. I am considering buying SuperDuper to do the Mac backup (and use MacDrive to do the same from my PC). I have a few questions I need to understand before making a purchase:

1. Will SuperDuper do Mac backups without impacting my PC files backed up on the external drive?

2. Do I need to partition the drive and let SuperDuper do the backup on one of the partitions or can I do both backups on a single partition? What is the preferred option?

The answer to both is the best thing to do is partition the drive. That'll keep the Mac files isolated from the PC files.

Hope that helps, Ketan.
