Advice formatting an external SSD as day-to-day working sample/backup vault. FAT32 or APFS?
I got a Samsung T5, and I want to offload my gigabytes os samples from my MacBook, which is bursting at the seams.
If I go FAT32, I get windows compatibility, and I can plug it into a wireless hub (a big plus for accessibility from iOS using FileBrowser.) However, FAT32 has limited file size (4GB), and music blobs can definitely be bigger. Also, there is a smaller maximum number of files.
Native apple format delivers better performance, and less hassles. Ironically, it's a little more confined to use from MacOS (only).
