You can setup TIme Machine and configure your external hard drive for the backup. Selecting the external hard drive will setup the Time Machine to backup Emails directly to the external hard drive. Here's how you can do it: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201250

When you need to restore your backed up iTunes Library from your external hard drive to your computer, follow these steps:

Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\ Windows Vista or Windows 7: \Users\username\My Music\ Open iTunes while holding down the Option key (Mac) or Shift key (Windows).

Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk. To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data. You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

you may face this issue because of differences between mac and windows file systems/partition table and security attributes that may disallow any further changes.
1-try to connect you HDD to a windows Computer and Backup all your files before loses any data(use more newer version of windows like windows 10 build 1709 windows XP is old/out of services and has many problems)
2-after a full backup in windows try to connect your HDD to your mac and format it via your MacBook
3- after formatting your HDD try to reconnect your HDD to windows and copy your files to HDD(windows has a compatible file systems that could read/allow/write mac file systems/partition and its attributes)
I would suggest sticking with Tiger. How to reinstall:
I assume you put the Tiger disc in the drive and rebooted while holding C or you changed your startup disc in System Preferences.
As you are clicking through the installation program, look for a "Options" button at the bottom, I believe. Click the button. Look for the "Archive and Install" option. Careful: **DON'T select "Erase and Install" unless you want everything erased off your hard drive.
There is a small risk of data loss when installing the operating system. You should have backups of your important pictures, documents, etc. You should have backups of your home folder. [The free Carbon Copy Cloner can make a copy of your hard drive onto an external hard drive. It can also make a disk image you can save to an external hard drive, if there's other stuff on the drive.]
Select "Archive and Install," which will save your previous OS in a folder and install Tiger. It will not touch your pictures, documents, etc.
After that, you should be good to go. If not, let us know and we'll do our best to help.

yes you could simply format the harddrive in Fat32 using your macos that would be the best solution but don`t forget to backup your data by copy pasting the files on your mac or something else and after that to move them on the external hdd again to be available on the windows machine
Well, in your case your external may corrupt. The solution is format the drive and then try some so-called data recovery software. After finishing the format option. Do it as follows.
Connect your hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site. data recovery (for Windows OS) Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)
Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem!
