what do you say in this please ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hello guys...

I have just bought my new LG external USB 250 GB HDD, and I love it

last night I backed up all my stuff in this PC to that HDD, and I am going to copy some stuff from the iMac I use at the newspaper I work for....

there, in the newspaper, we deal with USB sticks and flash memory so much, especially when the local network goes down, so I already know that there are much of Windows viruses lurking in that iMac, though the mac is supposed to be immune, and I know that Windows viruses wont corrupt a mac system, but this doesn't mean that there are not Windows viruses in that iMac...

this is not the point I am discussing, what I want to ask about is, that would those Windows viruses copy themselves to my external HDD FROM THAT IMAC ?

or as Mac OS is immune against Windows viruses, this means that those Windows viruses wont be able to copy themselves to any media mean throughout a Mac environment ?

I don't want to spread viruses into my new external HDD so fast..

so what do you guys say ?

I wouldn't trust a difference in operating systems to prevent the transfer of viruses. I'd copy the stuff you wanted to keep from work to a different HDD and run it through a couple anti viruses before I put it anywhere near my personal data.
