How do i backup my iMac files onto Seagate Backup Plus drive (NTFS file system)? I prefer to keep both Windows pc & iMac backups on the same drive.

OS X can't write in NTFS disks. If you want to write in NTFS drives, you have to use a third-party app like Paragon for NTFS. b

Another option is to format the external disk in exFAT on a PC, so you will be able to read and write in Macs and PCs without having to use third-party apps.

Or partition in two the external drive and use NTFS for the windows backups and Mac OS Extended file system for the Mac backups
