Question New to Super Duper question

I searched the pdf user guide and the forums but I didn't found information about a topic which is fundamental for me before trying Super Duper. Can I backup my Mac with Super Duper on a NTFS usb drive? In the user guide I read that I can do that with a Nas or like, but I didn't get if I can do that with an ordinary usb drive.
This would be useful because the external usb drive I'm using is now formatted for Time Machine and I can't use it to exchange files with Windows or Linux machines. If Super Duper works on NTFS I could stop Using time Machine and go back to NTFS.
Thank you.

Sorry, no: we can't back up to an NTFS drive. (OSX can't write natively to NTFS.)

So I still need a big external drive just to back up my Mac and I can't share it with other machines.. Ok, it's not Super Duper's fault!
Thanks for the support.
