    Hey, right I have a hard drive that only holds a back up for my mac and that's it only purpose (it's a 1TB, well more than enough), is it possible for me to have a separate backup for another mac with the exact same specs on the same hard drive?
    Also can I got between the two back ups and get files from either ?

    Thanks

    1. You would have to partition it with two partions first. You can partition it in Disk Utility on the Mac. It will erase the the drive when you do this.
    2. Yes. It looks just like the file system on your Mac's HD. Click on the backup folder and then select a date.
