I just received my SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD for external library storage and noticed it’s in the Exfat format. I’m using a new MacBook Pro M1. My primary use of FCPX is editing videos for my YouTube channel. Should I bother to reformat the SanDisk to APFS?
Hello Jonathan. You should definitely NOT use Xfat – you should reformat the drive to APFS – as this is optimized for SSDs’ and will give you the fastest response when locating, moving, or copying files.
