I recently purchased an external HD and was wondering, is there any problems with backing up two different computers that have different O/S? One has Vista Ultimate and the other is XP? I've already backed up the Vista system but I would like to do the same to the XP model at this point. I suspect it's not a problem as long as I practice file structure/management, but I want to get some input from the board first.
