Hello. I hope everyone is keeping well.

Can anyone tell me please what the pros and cons are of converting an external drive into a NTFS partition rather than leaving it as an exFAT?

I've always had terrible luck with WD (Passport) drives, but so far so good with my Seagate. I know that 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', but wondered if there were any pluses to doing so. I use it basically just to store the most important of our files, and just lately, to move files between systems . My 'main' game is PC based, so I don't need to use it for a Playstation or XBox, etc.

Leave as-is and stop messing with stuff, or go for it ... and why?

Thanks!
