    Use HDD from Mac on windows PC?

    I have been given a good working 320gb SATA internal hard drive pulled from a friends Mac computer. Will I be able to format this and use it as a storage/backup drive in my Windows 7 PC ? I believe it is a WD brand but has apple on the label

    As long as you have a spare SATA port you will be able to use this disk in W7.
    You may need to delete the existing partition and create a new one before use.

    cheers, Paul

    thanks for the reassurance. I will be doing a complete format when I get it to make sure it's clean
