Can I format my Hard-drive to another format with data pre-existing?
"I have a 2TB WD Mypassport drive which is currently formatted in Microsoft NTFS and filled upto 1.5TB. I wanted to ask if it is possible to format the remaining 500 GB(Via partition) in APFS format(Apple’s format)?
If it’s a no, I won’t bother.
But If it is a yes, My next question is that , Is it possible to format the complete drive in APFS, If i make a partition of 500GB (APFS, out of 2TB) and move some data from the NTFS part(1.5TB) until the APFS partition is full? and then format the empty part again into APFS and keep on repeating my hard drive is completely in APFS format?
I am doing this because I don’t have any option to store/backup the data in any another Drive/Cloud service… I want to try all the free options first."
