Because I have to backuo videoclips larger vthan 4Gb I nedd to format my ex4 with the extended hfs file system: how do I have to proceed? thanks
the EX4 is it’s own small computer system which runs it’s own filesystem and “serves” those files to your mac ( thank god for that ) The filesystem that the EX4 uses is “ext4”
I’m a mac guy to, and HFS+ is sadly way beyond it’s expiration date. I’ve lost PLENTY of data in failed attempts to archive/backup data w/ HFS+
set your ex4 nas in RAID 5 or 10 and backup to it’s much more secure ext4 filesystem.
…if your *really* serious about preserving that data ditch the WD EX4 and get your hands on a iXsystems NAS using ZFS or btfs.
Thank you very much!!! OK
