APFS and Boot Camp

Deal with Win­dows and APFS in­com­pat­i­bil­ity

Mac Format - - MACOS SKILLS -

If you down­load files in macOS that you need to ac­cess in Boot Camp, and High Sierra has con­verted your macOS volume to APFS, you’ll need to re­think how you do this be­cause Win­dows can’t read APFS, even with Ap­ple’s Boot Camp soft­ware in­stalled. You might move files to an ex­ter­nal drive that’s in a Win­dows-read­able for­mat (FAT or exFAT, say), switch to down­load­ing in Win­dows it­self if that’s the only place files are needed, or use a prod­uct such as Paragon’s NTFS for Mac ($19.95, bit.ly/prgn­ntfs) to write to the Boot Camp par­ti­tion from within macOS.
