Hello!

I have an external hard drive that is connected through my router USB. I have formatted two partitions, one for use with Time Machine in OSX Journaled and one partition in FAT 32. I have an IMac and a PC and I'd like to use this external hard drive for storage as well as for the Time Machine.

Time Machine will not recognize the partition I have formatted for it. I have no trouble seeing the partition that contains the storage in either computer. I can also mount both partitions on my Mac, but I cannot get Time Machine to select that partition in it's available choices. What am I doing wrong?

I know it can be done, but all the articles I have read thus far have helped me only to a point.

Thanks!
