Thanks for getting back to us, mka052779.

To format the disk with the FAT32 filesystem, you'll want to choose the "MS-DOS (FAT)" option to accomplish this.

If I want to export an album to a USB stick for a friend, can I do that from Photos?



Yes, select all photos in the album, then use the command "File > Export > Export ... photos".

In the panel that will open click the "v" to the right of "Photo Kind" to reveal the controls for the size and quality.

Usually the quality "Large" will suffice, but you will probably save the photos with "Size > Full Size".

Now click "Export" and select a folder on your USB stick. Do not write to the top level of the stick, create first a folder.

TRIM is enabled individually as it is a separate setting in each MacOS Install on each drive you are running.

 

If it runs better in Windows (which uses built-in TRIM) and better from a Hard drive than an SSD, you may have to methodically do this process for each boot SSD:

 

sudo trimforce enable

agree to the terms and the restart.

restart in Safe Mode to massively TRIM the unused blocks

 

then you can compare performance.

In my opinion, RAIDs should never be used for a boot or startup drive. They are primarily used for faster data storage. I use one for my backup drive but I use a mirrored RAID for redundancy protection. I recommend making a bootable backup on another drive, removing the RAID setup and cloning the bootable backup to one of the RAID's drive and repurposing the other for added storage or for backup. You could also repurpose the RAID for backup by converting it to a mirrored array.

 

RAID Basics

 

For basic definitions and discussion of what a RAID is and the different types of RAIDs see RAIDs.  Additional discussions plus advantages and disadvantages of RAIDs and different RAID arrays see:

 

RAID Tutorial;

RAID Array and Server: Hardware and Service Comparison.

 

Hardware or Software RAID?

 

RAID Hardware Vs RAID Software - What is your best option?

 

RAID is a method of combining multiple disk drives into a single entity in order to improve the overall performance and reliability of your system. The different options for combining the disks are referred to as RAID levels. There are several different levels of RAID available depending on the needs of your system. One of the options available to you is whether you should use a Hardware RAID solution or a Software RAID solution.

 

RAID Hardware is always a disk controller to which you can cable up the disk drives. RAID Software is a set of kernel modules coupled together with management utilities that implement RAID in Software and require no additional hardware.

 

Pros and cons Software RAID is more flexible than Hardware RAID. Software RAID is also considerably less expensive. On the other hand, a Software RAID system requires more CPU cycles and power to run well than a comparable Hardware RAID System. Also, because Software RAID operates on a partition by partition basis where a number of individual disk partitions are grouped together as opposed to Hardware RAID systems which generally group together entire disk drives, Software RAID tends to be slightly more complicated to run. This is because it has more available configurations and options. An added benefit to the slightly more expensive Hardware RAID solution is that many Hardware RAID systems incorporate features that are specialized for optimizing the performance of your system.

 

For more detailed information on the differences between Software RAID and Hardware RAID, you may want to read: Hardware RAID vs. Software RAID: Which Implementation is Best for my Application?

My concern is the possibility that the High Sierra version of Photos may make some modifications to my photo libraries that are not backward compatible to Sierra.


 

Yes it is - pretty much every update of the OS does - you need a separate coy of the Photos library for HS testing - once you open a Photos library with Photos 3 in HS you can no longer open it with any older version of Photos
