  1. I have a 1 T Seagate backup drive for a Mackbook Pro and have bought an MB air. Would like to use drive to backup both when I plug it into either. How do I do this? Don't know how to partition so it will backup either when plugged in. Thanks

  2. Surely the older disk utility has so much to offer. Really miss it. But thanks to Stellar Partition Manager, which is a fine alternative to the Disk Utility, I am able to partition, resize and erase the Mac hard drive.
