The description states that it is "mac compatible with reformatting." Will it work with my late 2015 i-mac using Sierra OS 10.12.6?
Asked by: Wayne
I know that MacOS can read NTFS drives, but not sure you'd be able to write. Your best bet would be to format as ExFat which is read/write for both Windows and Mac for copying files back and forth. You would need to format as HFS+ to use as a Time Machine backup drive.
