I’ve simply newly purchased an exterior drive (not SSD), and was planning to create a number of partitions on it, for instance to maintain my information separate from Time Machine backups.
Nevertheless, when looking via the Disk Utility assist guides, I discovered the next paragraph:
Nevertheless, with APFS, you shouldn’t partition your disk most often. As an alternative, create a number of APFS volumes inside a single partition.
I do not want the information or the disk to be suitable with another working system – in that case, wouldn’t it be the advisable choice to set the disk format to
APFS after which create “a number of APFS volumes” as an alternative of a partition?
Or does the advice within the assist information not apply to common exterior drives?
I hope such a query is on-topic right here, because it’s my first time asking (I am extra used to stackoverflow), and I would prefer to thanks upfront to your assist!
