Cant Transfer File from Mac to External Hard drive? Drive Formatted in NTFS? Published: 6 months ago By: ILuvTrading

If you cannot transfer a data/file from your Mac to your external hard drive it may be because the external hard drive is formatted in a NTFS file system which is used for a Windows PC only. If it has a NFTS file system then only a Mac / Apple computer can read it but cannot write to it.
Therefore if you want to move files between a Mac & Windows and vice versa you need a file system that works for them of them (fat32 or expat).

Important Note: Remember when you format a drive you are basically deleting everything on that drive!
