Hi, I am reorganizing my archive of family photos/data on 500gb-1.5TB 3.5" drives from back when I was using Windows. Drives from 2000-2010 were formatted NTFS(and a few were ExFaT) and I am wondering if I should leave them as they are or reformatting them as OS X Extended (Journaled). I can upgrade to Paragon NTFS 14 from 12 to edit data on the drives but I would feel better using native formatted drives on Sierra and beyond. Will there be any benefit to formatting in OS X Extended (Journaled) vs keeping them on NTFS/Exfat? Someone mentioned Apple formatted drive is better in case of improper shutdowns. Or should I wait and reformat for when APFS comes out? I have about 30 TB of data from 2000-2016. any advice on consolidating all this data for easy, one device access? I looked into Synology NAS and g-tech xl(too expensive). thanks.
