APFS is the newer standard.
Hi! Happy New Year to everyone! Here's hoping for a better year.
I just upgraded to Big Sur OS on my iMac. I have a new 5 TB Seagate drive that I want to format; it will be used to store data (mostly images) from old disks that the newer Mac OS won't read (I will transfer the data using our older laptop, then copy to the new drive -- that's the plan anyway). Whatever I end up doing with the new drive, I need to format it.
What format should I use:
Mac OS Extended (Journaled) - HFS+ or APFS?
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
