OT: Using a USB hub with 3 computers, 1 printer, 1 external drive (for backup for any of the three PCs)



In a way, the subject covers most of it: " Using a USB hub with 3 computers, 1 
printer, 1 external drive (for backup for any of the three PCs)".

I don't know much about USB hubs, I guess all of the ports are two way.

To clarify, if needed, I'd like to buy a 5 (or more) port USB (3.0) hub to 
connect 3 PCs, 1 printer, and 1 external drive such that I can print or backup 
from any of the 3 pcs.

I suppose there are two questions:

   1.  Should I expect any problem "hardware wise"?

   2. I suppose I have to consider the mounting of the partitions on the 
drives, I suppose it would be a bad idea to have the same partition (or even 
drive) mounted on more than one pc at the same time?

(And I guess I'd have to avoid printing from two computers at the same time.)
