    I don't know what the best option is, but my drives are partitioned as 'Mac OS Extended (Journaled)'.

    For future reference, you're likely to get the best possible answers and the fastest replies if you use a more meaningful thread title.

    We routinely added extra descriptive words in parentheses after thread titles, as we did for this thread, if they don't identify the topic, so that others will know to view the thread if they can help, so people who don't have an interest can skip it, and so people looking for the same answer can find the thread in the future.
