The Canvio Basics includes no software. The drive itself can be used on a Mac but would require reformatting to do so. Please see the instructions for Mac on how to reformat the drive.

The Canvio Basics does not include any software. Reformatting to the Mac format will make it available only on a Mac. The NTFS file system can be read by the Mac OS but not is not able to write to it. For the best compatibility between Mac and PC we offer our Canvio Connect, Canvio 3.0 and Canvio Slim products. These all include Tuxera NTFS for Mac, which enables the Mac OS to both read and write to the NTFS partition.
