Plotting on Windows, farming on Ubuntu HDD Format?

I plan on using my Windows machine to plot and then move the HDDs to my Ubuntu machine to run the farm. What file format would you suggest for my plots?

Was thinking exFAT but also considering NTFS? Can anyone seen any negative impacts of using NFTS on an UBUNTU system?

Dude I am doing the other way around - Ubuntu on the plotter seems faster than on Windows 10 - for farmer I have to use Windows because it is really easy to turn off spinning drives’ sleep profile in windows, something I couldn’t get to work in Ubuntu… NTFS would be the choice to go on Windows - my Ubuntu is ext4 I think…

NTFS is a good choice and it is mounted as read-only by default on Linux which is perfect for farming.
