Best format for backup SSD?

Go to solution Solved by zipb,

Hi all - very naive question, but... I've just grabbed a new SSD for use as man backup for all my audio - Logic, Pro Tools etc. ChatAI suggests using EXFAT format. I've no idea what that is, but shall I go with it?


(And of course please feel free to move this to another part of the forum is this isn't the right place...)

Use the one that Apple suggests by default.

APFS offers the ability to divide the disk into multiple "volumes" which then appear as separate "mount points" (desktop icons). But this is a logical subdivision of the space, not a physical one. Very handy. Much, much cleaner than messy "physical partitions." Clearly (IMHO) the appropriate choice.
