GSS6450 GSS6425: What format system is used on the internal or external hard drive?
When the removeable drive is shipped it will be formatted as EXT4, this is the native Linux disk format and provides much faster disk access than disks which are formatted as NTFS.
If the disk is subsequently formatted in a different format such as NFTS then this could induce problems with the speed of writing to the disk or copying files from the disk.
It is recommended that the format of the disk is EXT4 on the GSS6450 and GSS6425. The gparted program on the GSS6450 can be used to do this.
