How to use my passport for mac with time machine

I tried to create a seperate folder, but there was no option in the menu bar to create a folder. How do I convert the files in the Time Machine backup so that through Windows but I very much doubt it.

The format process can take up to several hours depending upon the drive size.

I tried to drag drop, but it wont accept that. Click on the links below to go to backup or restore section of the article. Click on the Security button, check the button for Zero Data and click on OK to return to the Erase window. Im thinking maybe I have to wipe it out, create a partition, then put Time Machine on one. I have been using Time Machine for several years, rotating through external disks. I would also like to use it as an external drive for pictures and videos from my MacBook, because they are using too much space on my laptop.
Usually, the hard drive will backup with time machine. How should I format this drive to use it with Time Machine. WD Network drives such as My Cloud can also be used with Time Machine. Wait for the Time Machine to configure and start the backup. Choose Replace or Use Both if you have multiple drives attached. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended Journaled. From Available Disks and click Use Disk.
