Re: Using time machine with a NTFS drive
Yes, you can do it. Time Machine works on HFS+, but it also works on sparsebundle disk-images. That's how it works with networks drives.
I wrote detailed steps at http://www.cafe-encounter.net/p1847/use-a-windows-ntfs-or-linux-or-other-formatted-disk-for-apple-time-machine-backups
but if you've already installed Tuxera then in outline it goes like this:
* Create a sparsebundle disk image
* Create a Time Machine preferences file inside the sparsebundle which contains the UUID of your machine
* Copy the sparsebundle to your disk
* Mount it
* Tell Time Machine to use it.
The first two steps are the difficult ones, but it only takes a couple of minutes to do.
