Hi all! I've been wanting to do the switch for a very long time now but never had the ''guts'' to. I'm now happy to say that I just purchased my first MacBook Pro and am in the process of switching over all my stuff from PC, but I'm having a bit of trouble with one particular very important aspect. The way I worked on my PC is that I had all my files on a 4TB external drive that was (semi-permanently) plugged into my PC. So when I purchased the MacBook I figured all I needed is to have the right software and just plug in my external drive to the Mac and continue using it the same way. Turns out, it's really not that simple. I searched the net to find some solutions but frankly I didn't find any clear answers, that's why I came on here to ask (been a very long time reader - not poster hehe). I now know the formats are different (NTFS vs FAT) so I'm not sure how I can adapt to that, and obviously I don't want to lose all my files! Is there a way I can use the hard drive as-is on my MBP? Ideally I'd like to be able to use it on both Mac and PC as I will be keeping my old PC for little things from time to time. Thanks in advance for all your help!! Greatly appreciated!!!
