    Okay, I have very large files and over 70 gigs of information i need to transfer to my hard drive.

    In disk utilities and erase drive, there are several options on how to make the external drive like mac extended, mac extended journaled, etc.... i don't know which one to use

    Specs:
    Mac Mini Core i7 2012 | White 2009 MacBook 2 Ghz | 733 Mhz G4 Quicksilver
    Mac OS extended or Mac OS Extended journaled - either will be fine
