Hard Drive Formats
It is recommended to format your hard drive before using with Monument, but it is not required. This can be done on a computer or laptop following the articles below.
Supported File Systems:
- NTFS (Windows - recommended)
- FAT32 (Windows)
- Mac OS Extended (Journaled) (Mac - recommended)
- exFAT (Windows/Mac)
Tip: Format to exFAT so that the hard drive can work on both Windows and Mac.<br>

Note: Currently, APFS file systems are not supported.<br>
