I got a new 4 TB hard drive with RAID.

I have a new Iomega hard drive designed for the G5 Mac and nearly went out and bought a G5 Mac used. I formatted the hard drive into 6 partitions of a little less than 500 GB each. It really only has about 2 TB space because of the RAID. I have backed up my eMac and my Macbook so far using the firewire connection. That's why I bought this particular model because it has a firewire interface. I am also copying data off of my network drive to this new hard drive. The drive can not be seen by my windows computers even though I reformated it to DOS readable partitions.
