Hi I have a laptop with windows and I am going to buy an Apple MacBook, I have a toshiba external hard drive with 24000 photos on it will I be able to view these on the Mac or do I have to format the hard drive. If I have to format it do I have to remove the photos first? I need help not sure at all

I don't see why you wouldn't be able to view them. I work between a windows Pc at work and a mac at home and often via usb stick move files around although haven't tried with photos. If you format the drive with the photos still on it they will be wiped.

Thank you I will be getting the Mac this week hopefully. This puts my mind at rest �I was just very worried as I have 30000 photos
