So despite the disadvantages, ExFAT is your best option for cross-platform hard drives. To be clear, you can use capital letters in file names either way.

What’s the Difference Between APFS, Mac OS Extended (HFS+), and ExFAT?

Case Sensitivity mostly determines whether the file system sees capital letters as different. The file system sees the file names as identical, even if they look different to you. Presumably, a case-sensitive file system was just seen as less user-friendly. Today, enabling case sensitivity could break some Mac apps that expect a case-insensitive file system.

Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Paragon Software

The main downside is that forgetting the encryption key means losing access to your files. Do not encrypt a drive unless you can remember the key, or unless you have somewhere secure to store it.

The other potential downside to encryption is performance. What's the best way to fix this? Posted on Dec 18, PM. Page content loaded. Dec 18, PM in response to mikepier In response to mikepier.

Not sure what sort if problem you have. You can also do it on any PC.

After Disk Utility loads select the external hard drive this is the out-dented entry with the mfgr. Click on the Partition tab in the Disk Utility main window.

Under the Volume Scheme heading set the number of partitions from the drop down menu to one. Click on the Apply button and wait until the process has completed. Dec 18, PM.

Reverse compatibility. To this day, it remains the default file system for mechanical and hybrid hard drives, both while installing macOS and while formatting external drives. ExFat should basically only be used on drives that need to work with both Windows and macOS computers. The format dates back to , and was made by Microsoft to provide some of the cross-platform compatibility of the older FAT32 format without the file and partition size limitations.
