    Formatting an external hard drive to be used with "Paragon"for both Mac & XP, There are several options:
    "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)"
    "Mac Os Extended"
    "Mac OS (FAT)"
    "exFAT"
    Which is recommended ?

    exFAT will allow you to read/write to the disk in both OS X and Windows.

    Or you could format in Windows to NTFS, then Paragon would allow you to read/write in the Mac side.
