A File is a suite of binary information, i.e. a suite from 0 to 1. This file may be stored in order to keep a record of this information. A text file is a file comprising characters stored in the form of octets.
File System formats
NTFS since it is the native file system for Windows, volumes created in NTFS are read and write with computers running Windows. Mac OS can read NTFS volumes but cannot natively write to them.
Mac OS Extended (HFS+) is the native hard drive file system for Mac. Windows cannot natively read or write to HFS+ (journaled) hard drives.
exFAT is generally compatible with Mac and Windows. exFAT is not a journaled file system which means it can be more susceptible to data corruption when errors occur or the drive is not disconnected properly from the computer.
FAT32 is compatible with Mac and Windows; however, FAT32 is a legacy file system designed for low capacity hard drives and it is not recommended for modern hard drives or operating systems. A FAT32 partition can reach up to 32GB when formatted on a Windows PC.
