File format


The HFS plus or HFS+ file system is a further development of HFS. HFS+ has replaced HFS as the standard file system for Apple's current Macintosh operating systems. It is also called Mac OS Extended, while its predecessor HFS was also called MAC OS Standard. HFS+ can be used for hard disks, floppy disks, CDs and USB memory sticks.
HFS+ also exists with journaling extension and therefore, like Microsoft's NTFS and the free file systems ext3, XFS and ReiserFS, has a higher stability compared to file systems that do not use journaling (FAT16 and FAT32, ext2, HFS and others).
