Chapter 6. Using Mac OS Software > Mac OS Extended Format (or HFS Plus)

Mac OS Extended Format (or HFS Plus)

With Mac OS 8.1, Apple introduced Mac OS Extended Format, or HFS Plus. Designed for high-capacity hard disks, HFS Plus decreases the minimum size of an allocation block, thus decreasing the amount of disk space that small files require. The net effect: You can store more information on disk.

Tip

To use HFS Plus, the computer to which the hard disk is directly connected must have Mac OS 8.1 or later installed.
