My Passport / Mac OS X 10.6.8. .. formatting

Yes. Hello.

(Nearest “Category” I could find to my subject interest.)

… I have recently bought a “My Passport” External HD.

And, I am a Mac User. … Running Mac OS X 10.6.8.

… Where and with working to reformat my new HD, I have been directed to base “Support” and then "Knowledge Base Answer ID 3865.

… Where, I am seeing “Instruction” links, for Mac Operating System, for as far back as Mac OS X 10.7. But no further.

… Is there a more basic way to reformat this particular External Drive, to Mac OS X 10.6.8.?

— Appreciate your time.

Answering my own question here, for anyone perhaps experiencing the same one.

The same general ideas / pathway, apply for Mac OS X 10.6.8, as with 10.13. Shown with accessing the site-pages linked to here below.


“Applications” > “Utilities” > “Disk Utility”, “Erase”, with reformatting to “Mac OS Extended (Journaled)”. …
