Ok, so I am on a Macbook. I have a 250GB external HDD with 80GB of stuff stored on it. It is using NTFS, and Macs don't normally allow you to write to NTFS, but I installed some 3rd party drivers. The problem is that the drivers don't work so well. The thing keeps giving me errors. I don't need it in NTFS anymore, so I want to back up the stuff and format with the OS X file system. How could I go about doing this? I only have 30GB free on my Macbook. This is what I have available to me: 1. School computers running windows with lots of free space that I could use to make the transfer 2. My girlfriends Macbook with lots of free space What can I do? If I copy the files onto the windows computer (the HDD works fine with windows computers), how do I get them off? I can attempt to copy them to my GFs Macbook, but I don't know if it will stay connected. Also, she doesn't have the NTFS drivers, so I don't know if I will be able to copy the files off my HDD. Any ideas?
