I use a PC. I have a client that uses Macs only. I am transferring his home videos to an external hard drive for him. The hard drive is NTFS formatted. I understand that he will not be able to write to that drive from his Mac, but that he should be able to read the files. Is that correct?
I also undertsand that if I reformat the drive to FAT32 before I start using it, then he would be able to read as well as write to it with his Mac. However, the FAT32 has a file size limit of 4GB, which we know is too little for big video files.
So my question is this … With the NTFS hard drive will he be able to copy the files on that drive to his Mac-formatted hard drive? In other words, I know he can READ it, but does that also mean he can copy/move the files to his mac formatted hard drive?
