Re: exFat to NTFS What are the benefits?

Gene
 

Here is another good article. 
 
It doesn't discuss a problem I read about years ago.  I don't know if it still is a problem.  After all this time, my memory may not be completely correct so I hope others comment on this.
 
As I recall the problem, it used to be that if you formatted a drive using Windows, as NTFS, it would read and write much more slowly than it should have because the segments, if that is the correct word, were too small, thus breaking data up into smaller pieces.  You could get around that by specifying a larger size.  I hope others comment on that.

How are you going to use the drive?  I used to know more about the comparisons of formats but I haven't read about it for two or three years or more.  I believe that NTFS is not compatible with certain operating systems such as Linux, (spelling.)  It may be now with Apple but I don't think it was for a time.  But I think the main reason external drives may not be formatted in NTFS is for the widest possible compatibility.

Hi folks.  I've just recently purchased a Western Digital 16tb external drive (2x8tb).  The format is ExFat and I did intend changing it to NTFS but as I don't know the advantages or disadvantages of either system is it worth the effort to convert.  What is the difference between the two and which is most recommended?  Also, how long does it take to convert a 16tb drive?  The drive is empty by the way, I've not had time to put anything on it.  All help appreciated.  Walter.

Hi Travis,

Thank you for your response. However, if I understand the whole messenger thing correctly, it is not the samde as the one at a time messages to which you are referring. If you go to your messenger page at

 

https://www.messenger.com/

a sighted person can see all of the messages in a conversation on that one page. It is a chat option which people can use as a live chat in pairs or groups or whatever. I am part of at least one neighborhood group, but can’t read the darned messages.

On the computer, I use it through the Facebook mobile site:

https://m.facebook.com/

If you tab from the top of the page, you'll find a link close to the top that says "messages." If you have new messages, there will be a number associated with the link. For instance, right now mine says

Messages(1)

That means there is a new message I haven't checked yet. Clicking on that will take me to that message.

If there is no number after the word "messages," clicking on that will get you to the page where you can view recent conversations by user, with links to click on each one if desired.

Like Ashley though, I find it to be most efficient using my iPhone.
