So here's my scenario, I'm planning on building a home media server using a mac mini. I'm planning on attaching a 4GB external hard drive to expand it's storage. My problem is which file system should I use for the drive? I want it to be interoperable with Mac and Windows without partitioning it into two formats. What are my options? Thanks.
