Step 1: Format hard drive If you have a Mac, use converter software so that you can read and write to NTFS drives. Tip NTFS is a Windows filing system, and converter software enables Macs to write to NTFS. Step 2: Store large files Store files of 4 gigabytes or more with no loss in system performance. Step 3: Add preferences Add your own preferences to files, such a specific file name, icons, and other attributes in the Preferences menu. Step 4: Recover files Recover lost or deleted files from the hard disk more easily without running disk repair. Step 5: Avoid storing sensitive data Avoid storing sensitive data, as the NTFS format lacks encryption capabilities and can be easily accessed without logging into the operating system. Step 6: Share and back up Share files with Macs and Linux computers that have been converted to NTFS or back up your data to an external hard drive with NTFS formatting. Did You Know?
