After formatting my SSD harddisk ( Samsung T7 1 TB ) at the disk utility tool at my Macbook pro 2013. I can not see the files or are able to write/read the files when connecting to my Fedora 34 Linux computer.
Which partiontype is the right one when do formatation in the Disks.
I need to1 read/Write on Linux, Macintosch and windows machines with the same harddisk as I want to share file betweent them.
So what would you advice be. That I make different partions on the SSD. The issue is that I would work on different OS platforms for example with sound. I have sound files on this computer running Fedora 34 Linux OS. I will like to connect my T7 SSD and tranfere sound files ( .mp3 ) then I can connect it in my Macbook and tranfere the mp3 files and work in Ableton. Some times when I work with graphical images like Ink scape and Gimp. I will go to a Fab Lab where they only have Windows OS. Thats why the SSD harddisk need to be readable at different platforms.
Not sure what you’re referring to here. Apple’s Disk Utility will format a disk using standard GPT, and can also do MBR as an option. Partition tables have been standardized and cross-platform at least ever since OS X came out; I’ll have to look up what Mac OS 9 and below used, but even in that era, I could format floppy disks for PC use on a Mac.
The file system format itself (currently APFS by default, and HFS+ previously) are less Linux and Windows friendly, I’ll admit. But the partition table is not the issue.
True about the partition tables, but windows will not show a drive that has only a linux file system on it nor access it even if it has a gpt partition table. In the disk manager it can be seen and can be wiped out but cannot be accessed. That is what I was referring to, not the partitioning.
If you didn’t need Mac too, I would’ve said to pick NTFS over exFAT. NTFS is nowadays very well supported on Linux (have been using it for 5+ years as daily driver for data partitions), and should work fine on Mac too if they’re using Linux’s ntfs-3g driver. However it seems native NTFS support is still “experimental” on Mac for some reason, although there’s paid software that does the trick: How to use NTFS drives on a Mac | TechRadar
Technically you could also use the usual Linux ext4 format by installing (open source) ext2/3/4 drivers on Windows (ext2fsd) and Mac (fuse-ext2), but I haven’t tried that.
Yes other you can use fat or exfat developed my microsoft
Xfs linux file system format is also there you can you that also.
And in the upcoming linux 5.15 kernel ntfs support has been improved significantly and it will be far far better once its out so you have to wait for.
