Just got my new macbook air M1.

I have 2 TB of images I want to copy from my pc to an external ssd drive (Samsung T7) connected to the mac.

I have tried migration assistant but it wont let me choose the external drive on the mac.

I have formated the external drive as "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" as I see on the internet is recommended. But when I plug the external drive into the pc it does not recognize it after formatting. So this is not an option either.

Could you please advise me how to transfer the files?

Thank you so much.

Best regards


Format the T7 as exFAT - then both PC and Mac will be able to read/write
