APFS formatting 13 Jun 2018 12:09 #9796

I was under the impression that V10 would include the APFS format for the ProToGo.
This is not the case.....

I am not sure where you got that impression. It is possible that the feature will be added later. Thanks for reporting the issue.

In High Sierra, APFS is optimized only for SSD devices. Full support for hard drives and hybrids is expected in Mojave.

your email to me as answer to my question about the absence of APFS formatting :
Hello,

Thanks for the message. Our developers are working on this and could see this included in a future update, but most likely will be an addition for the next version of TechTool Pro.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

That is why I thought APFS would be included, that's why I upgraded to V10.
In your promotion it also looks like APFS is fully supported.

Thanks for the explanation.

No utility can fully support APFS at the moment, both because APFS is itself a work-in-progress, and Apple has yet to release documentation for it for developers. What is needed is documentation at least as detailed as the one for the HFS+ filesystem:
