I just purchased a Samsung Story 1.5TB hard drive. I was planning on formatting as NTFS and using it as a pc backup (My 750 gig HD is full), until I went to format it on my vista pc. I saw I had an option to format as exFAT and know FAT32 works in OS X, and was wondering if exFAT will work on OS X also?
no. I'm not even sure OS X will read it. I think not. there maybe some third party drivers provided by something like MACFUSE but you'd have to search for that.
Or should I wait until Apple activates NTFS writing on OS X?
either that or use the hack that activates NTFS writing now.
Warning: it is extremely buggy so I wouldn't go there. other options are to use NTFS-3g or NTFS for Mac by Paragon.
and of course you can use FAT32.
