What file format is NAS?

What file format is NAS?
Here is an internal drive file system available on different NAS systems.
Btrfs. – Synology Asustor
EXT4 – Synology, Qnap, Asustor and others
ZFS. – Qnap

 

External Drives connected can be:
Btrfs
EXT4
EXT3
FAT
NTFS
HFS+
exFAT*
But this means nothing since you connect via the network.

The question is – will it work with my MAC or PC if NAS has a different file system?


The answer is YES. Thanks to NFS network file system – all data gets translated between NAS and any client computer accessing the data. This means you can store and access files across different platforms.


 


A network file system (NFS) is a type of file system mechanism that enables the storage and retrieval of data from multiple disks and directories across a shared network. A network file system enables local users to access remote data and files in the same way they are accessed locally.


 


 


I hope this helps.
