Need to Share drives with a PC ?

Using a MAC and need to Share drives with a PC ?

Disk Utility has you covered.

To simply create a drive you can read and write to on a MAC and PC, back up any data already on the drive, then open Disk Utility in Applications > Utilities. Select the drive in the sidebar and click the Erase tab. In the Format pull-down menu, choose MS-DOS (FAT) if the drive is under 32GB, or ExFAT if the drive is larger.

Name the drive something clever, then click the Erase button to apply the new format. Don’t forget that Windows won’t recognize files larger than 4GB on the drive – a limitation not shared with NTFS-formatted volumes.
