Using your G-Technology drive on Windows and Mac tip

Postby Kenny M » Sep 20th, '12, 15:18

G-Technology products are formated for Mac out of the box but with a reformat they can be configured for cross platform use. Currently there are two formats that will allow read and write access for both OS:

FAT32 (MS-DOS): Limited to no single file over 4GB, Works with all versions of Windows and Mac OS.

exFAT: Requires a exFAT update for Windows XP, natively supported by Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Requires Mac OS 10.6.5+.

Please follow the link below for the steps on formating a G-Drive to FAT32:

*If supported these instructions can be used for formating to exFAT.

Lastly there is the option of adding support with third party applications.

well being new here tonight I can see already it's not a well kept place. What's with all the football mess? Highly annoying and not the place for it :-\

*edit* I see those annoying posts have now been removed :) Thanks
