How to Format a Western Digital My Passport through Mac & PC

I have a Western Digital My Passport hard drive in my usage for the last 3 years at my workplace. I have never experienced any problem with this hard drive. However I waswondering if anyone could share some insight on how to format a WD Passport through Mac & PC?  

First you should make a backup of all the data on your Western Digital HDD. Because, during the reformatting process any data that is on the hard disk drive will be deleted or destroyed. You should use WD’s Formatting Utility when you are running a reformat on Windows system for desired results. The capacity of the hard drive doesn’t matter because; of some limitation on windows 2000, XP and Vista the partition size can only be up to 32GB.
