    joemd60 - I just did a quickie Google and found a YouTube on this that is quite good. In his case, he's created 3 partitions - one for Time Machine, one for Mac files and one for Windows files, so he can share the HDD with a Windows computer. Also, you'll note the Partitioning allows you to set the formatting for each partition and deals with it all, whereas I did a full format and then the partition. Both clearly work. Hope this takes the some of the fear factor away - though frankly, If I could do it fearlessly and without screwing up, anybody can....

    Thank you Bazza! Much appreciated. I'll keep that on file.

    Congratulations, I'm sure you love it by now. I went from Windows to Mac not knowing anything about it, but it was a very natural experience for me.

    My 2013 MacBook Air 13" model will be in tomorrow evening! What are some free and paid apps from the Mac App Store that are must haves? And I would appreciate any OS X tips and tricks as this is the first Mac I've ever owned, or used ( For more then 45 minuets). Thanks in advance!
