High Sierra & Apple File System (APFS)

Recommended Posts

I read it this morning on the internet that, in High Sierra, Apple introduced a new file system called Apple File System (APFS).

 

All my external portable drives (archives & backups) are formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled).  Are they in danger of becoming not readable by this new file system?

Thanks, MDM.  It is good to know.

MDM is correct. There are only issues the other way around, like trying to read an APFS initialised disk with an older system.
