    So i plan on taking an internal hard drive and placing it in an enclosure, but i'm not sure what file system to use. It is currently in my PC, and it has data on it. It would be formated to the NTFS file system, and i've heard that that file system does not work with macs. So what format will allow files larger than 4GB and both my mac and pc can access the hard drive.

    Thanks

    NTFS is read only.

    Fuse for Mac uses:

    Allows re-write.

    The alternative is to install Macdrive on Windows - it works beautifully and allows for large file support.
