Exfat Мы Ntfs For Mac Os

Mac OS X supports a handful of common file systems—HFS+, FAT32, and exFAT, with read-only support for NTFS. It can do this because the file systems are supported by the OS X kernel. Time Machine volumes must be HFS+ formatted, listed in Disk Utility as “Mac OS Extended (Journaled)”. Time Machine can only back up volumes formatted either as HFS+ or the newer APFS format.

  1. NTFS—The native file system for Windows. MacOS can read NTFS volumes but cannot natively write to them. Mac OS Extended (HFS+)—An Apple file system optimized for macOS 10.12 and earlier. This file system remains the best option for external hard drives.
  2. In the 'File System' dropdown, choose exFAT instead of NTFS. Click Start and close this window when finished. From then on, that drive should work fantastically between Mac and Windows machines.

Format the new drive on the Win 7 machine, right click on it's icon and format: exFAT.

If you ever want to connect the drive to a XP machine with exFAT installed (free from Microsoft), then your looking at MBR + exFAT.

If the XP machine can't install exFAT, like it's not verified, then MBR + FAT32 (MSDOS) and keep all files under 4GB in size.

If you want to connect the drive to consoles and other devices, then MBR + FAT32 (MSDOS)
