Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat device for Mac Time Machine backup I bought this recently as a permanently connected device for use with Time Machine on my Macbook Pro. It worked straight away as expected and it is neat and easy to carry around. I do not have a huge amount of storage on the Mac, so offload anything that is not needed day to day onto the My Passport disc. That keeps the Mac running smoothly but still gives easy access to lots of data.

I want to reduce the amount of photos stored on my MacBook. Can I download photos on this device and then delete photos on the MacBook. but use it now and again to retrieve and use the saved photos at will.

Asked by: Brasso
Yes this would be fine.

So, basically - pre-formatting for the Mac costs an extra £15 over the cost of the 'standard' Windows product? Seems like purchasing the latter and self formatting is a no brainer to me?

Asked by: Codmental
Yes, this is correct, however, in order for Western Digital to have the device tested and accredited for Macintosh on their product will incur costs to the manufacturer.
