So I have repartitioned with NTFS and HFS+ and both volumes are again usable. In the process of trial and error I've found that ExFAT partitions over wireless aren't mounting with Iomega iConnect (?). I would take ExFAT over NTFS because of the increased cross-platform potential (as read and write being able for both Win and MacOS, while MacOS can only read NTFS).
I am working under Win7 32 bit and MacOS X.8.2. I have left my Win8 computer out of the picture due to alleged compatibility issues. When I get to reuse Iomega with Win8 64 bit, I'll report back on the experience.
My other trouble with the Iomega iConnect is, as said in the original post, Time Machine wireless backup to my Iomega Prestige Portable Disk through Iomega iConnect. I have tried the legacy AFP services (http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4700
) and this other fix: http://www.somelifeblog.com/2009/02/fix ... twork.html
Can't get either to work on the subfolder created in the Mac HFS+ (with journaling) partition of the Iomega external disk when it is attached to the iConnect device. I remind that the referred partition is one of two, the other being the NTFS.
I should open a new topic with this separate issue.
Meanwhile, any thoughts on this? My IT understanding is common user-like.
Pardon the bad english as it isn't native to me.
