This might be a really simple question but I am struggling to find an authoritative answer to it so here I am. I have just bought two new external hard drives for my computer as the time has come to retire their predecessors. I now have a 4TB spinning disk and a 1TB SSD.
I am looking at Disk Utility and am wondering what is the best way to format them. I used to always go Mac OS Extended (Journaled) but would I be better with APFS now? My computer is a 2018 MacBook Pro running Mojave so is already APFS. The two new drives will contain photo and video files. I’ll only be using the drives with this computer.
