Network Hard Drive - what can it do

  Nessie 20:23 09 May 09


I have a network and want to add a network drive and I have a few questions. Can I set it up to save data from my Laptop(xp), Laptop (xp) and my pc(vista) and then make all that info available to all other computers. Does it matter if there is a mixture of fat 32 and ntfs with the computers and if not does it matter what format the network drive is. Can the drive be used easily to keep yout itunes on. All the computers will be connected wirelessly to the hard drive. Hope yoy can answer my many questions.

If all PCs can access the network then they should all be able to access the drive.

XP or Vista will be able to see both FAT and NTFS drives.

You can keep what ever data you wish on the drive but programs may be a problem if required to run on more than one machine.
