Living with Windows: sharing drives | Business Center | Working Mac | Macworld: “There are three good ways to share a single hard drive between Macs and PCs for general storage and backup: You can trade a USB hard drive between them; you can use a network-attached storage (NAS) device (such as Apple’s Time Capsule); and you can also use file sharing to back up data on one system to an external drive attached to another system.”

Microsoft announces Windows 7 SP1: “Computerworld – Microsoft today announced service packs for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, but declined to set a release date or a schedule for getting a beta in users’ hands.

According to a company spokesman, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) will primarily contain ‘minor updates,’ including patches and hotfixes that will have been delivered earlier via the Windows Update service, rather than new features. One of the latter: an updated Remote Desktop client designed to work with RemoteFX, the new remote-access platform set to debut in SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2.”
