external hard drive for MAC

I want to back up my IMac  on an external hard drive.  Have purchased Backup Plus Slim but notice on the box it says for OS 10.7 or higher.  My Mac is Version 10.6.8 - can I still use this external hard drive.  I don't want to upgrade my operating system until I have a back up. If I can't use the Backup Plus Slim, what can I purchase?

Hi jeane3 -

 

I believe the operating system requirements listed on the package refer to the requirements of the promotional software included with the drive. If all you're wanting to do is use the drive for a Time Machine backup you should be just fine.
