I am considering getting the new MacBook Air that runs OS Mojave.

My current laptop runs Mac OS Sierra (10.12.6) and my external HDD is formatted to Mac OS Extended (Journaled).

I know little about AFPS, the new file system used with Mojave.

Should I expect any compatibility issues between my current files on the computer/external and if I get the new machine?

Any special care I should take while transferring my files? I was planning to use Air Drop, or just a simple drag-drop from my external HDD.

Thanks!

APFS is specifically designed for SSD Boot drives. It is compatible with HFS+ formatted external drives https://www.howtogeek.com/331042/wha...hfs-and-exfat/
