If so ....
Don't think so. I haven't been able to make that work anyway and I've tried by putting entire comp backups on a 500g pocket drive and then accessing files by plugging in to a different machine. I think it's the two OS'es that foul access. I'm not a comp geek though so am not the right guy to actually know. Only the guy to have actually tried.
