So I have an external hard drive I use for backup, of both the Mac and Windows sides of my computer. It's split into an HFS+ and a NTFS partition. However, after I run backup on the Windows side, the HFS+ side becomes unreadable and needs reformatted.
I've read that this is because Windows writes some extra stuff to other partitions with the most space, and it reads HFS+ as empty, so therefore writes to it. So if it were a separate HDD but in the same enclosure/likely through the same cable, would this still happen you think? Or should I just have two completely separate external drives?
