Will formatting drive as OSX journaled lose features

I want to move a Mac Photos library off my Macbook and onto the Passport Wireless to free up space. I will be creating a new Photos Library for photos going forward but would obviously like to have occasional access to the old library. In order for me to actually “use” the library ( i.e. make changes) I would have to reformat the drive as a Mac drive. Just worried that I will lose some of the other features built in to the drive if I change the format.


Yes, you will loose some of the features on the drive. You wont be able to use the drive wireless functionality.

Thank you for the rapid reply. Was what I suspected so I will leave well enough alone and work around it. Thanks
