Using My Book for Time Machine

The latest Mac OSX leopard come with a cool feature , a backup feature – Time Machine , this is the main reason i getting Western Digital External Harddisk – My Book Essential Edition during pc show.

The starting not really that good, i wish to use firewire to connect my Book and my Mac , but there is no respond after i conect both, so i change it to USB but there are no respond too. After doing some google, i found that i need to install driver in order for my mac to recognise my Book.

WD Drive Manager ( MAC ) – after install this and restart , i have the small WD icon on my menu bar, telling me how many percent more of space i leave. So split the protable harddisk into 3 partition , using 1 for Time Machine , 1 leave it for sharing file with windows system and last one should be using for OS virtualization.

Time Machine configuration is easy, too bad is not detail enough, the only thing that you can configure is which folder to exclude from backup. Thats why i think i will cross using iBackup which i mention in previous post , hmmmm do i need to start the topic about whats the advantage of backup ?
