I’m a student in my 3rd year of uni studying digital design, which means I can be using one mac one day and a completely different mac the next. Basically I need an external hard drive that will work instantly when connected with a mac instead of having to install software every time I use a different computer. Any recommendations/advice is welcome.
You can use the WD My Passport for Mac, WD My Passport Ultra for Mac and WD My Book with the Mac.
The WD My Book is a Desktop External hard drive which is formatted in ExFAT that makes it compatible with macOS and Windows both.
