Lot’s of time, we confused with external hard drive file system selection, so decided to write this post for myself options available are as below:

External hard drive file system Compatibility :
Windows Ubuntu Mac
NTFS Y Y Y -( Read-only )

to write need third party plugins like ntfs-3g

FAT32

(4gb file size limit)

 Y  Y  Y
