    Should I convert my external HDDs to APFS?

    I'm not worried about compatibility with Windows or older macOS. What I'm worried about is the fact that APFS is optimized for SSDs. So will APFS potentially make my HDDs unreliable or slower? What's your experience with APFS with traditional HDDs? Thanks!
