Hi, I have just been given a WD external drive by my father to put our family history/photos on. He has a windows computer, and I have an iMac. I’m pretty sure it was plugged into my sisters windows machine briefly before he brought it to me, but I’m not 100% sure. When I open the drive I see some .exe files and some folders like “autorun” and “WDSync” but no photos or any other sign of use.
Do I need to format it for Mac before I can copy files over? and if I do have to, can someone else later be able to add to it on their windows computer or will we need a seperate device?
Sorry, bit confused about it all. Never used one before!
