New disk devices can be initialized as Master Boot Record (MBR) or GUID Partition Table (GPT) and can be formatted using different types of file systems. Use this course to become familiar with and learn how to manage common Linux, macOS, and Windows file systems. To start, explore common file system types including the New Technology File System (NTFS), File Allocation Table (FAT32), exFAT, ext3, ext4, and the Apple File System (APFS). Discover the difference between MBR and GPT disks and learn how to format and partition disks. You'll then work with NTFS, share, and Linux file system permissions to configure access for network shares and learn how to manage file systems using command line tools. Once you have completed this course, you will be able to choose the appropriate file system and management tools for specific situations. This course will help you prepare for the CompTIA A+ Core 2 (220-1102) certification exam.
