Okay, I watched the video a delight, I'll watch it a few more times, 
didn't quite catch the file system suitability NTFS? I'll listen for 
that again. My understanding of the video, at this point,i'll call fuzzy 
logic one or two more viewings should answer most, I have a little 
youtube anxiety. I have been watching youtube for years ad free, last 
month they asked for a signup which I have been trying to skirt. so if I 
am not prevented by you tube I'll enjoy watching the video which is 
invaluable, Thanks for having the interest, taking the time making this 
herein informative, detailed recommendation.

Best, a
