Is it possible to access an external USB HDD's data, that is used for Apple Mac OS X 10.5.8's Time Machine backups, on non-Apple Mac machines (Windows and Linux)? Or can it be only be accessed with a Mac? I use multiple computers and OSes.


Thank you in advance.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 2.4 Ghz; A1260 model; 15" size.
