My Extreme PRO USB 3.1 128 GB devices are pre-formatted ex-FAT and I want to reformat them to NTFS because a large portion of the files to be put on them will be small. Both of the drives will have the files used by E-mail package with some of the data files and indexes being updated several times a day.
- If I copy all files on the Extreme PRO to another drive, Reformat to NTFS and then copy them back, can Secure Access still be used on the NTFS formatted Extreme PRO?
2. I have assumed that the Extreme PRO has a higher write threshold? Will reformatting substantially reduce the life of the Extreme PRO? I am interested in the Extreme PRO as opposed to a generic USB device.
