Customer Question

I just bought an external hard drive and set it up with time machine on my mac. My problem is now I can not get any information off of our regular computer so i can save it on my hard drive because the windows will not recognize that it is there. Is there anything i can do?

The external drive has a Mac Format on it. That drive would have to be reformatted for PC to use it on a PC. I don't think you can do both easily.
