Default Hollywood Diamond drive from EW is NTFS

The drive I got from EW containing Hollywood Diamond (and Gold) versions of Brass, Strings and Woodwinds, is NTFS formatted.
This means my Mac can read (and copy) the files on that drive but not write to the drive, even though there’s 300 GB of free space left, which I would like to use for backup of a few other Hollywood Diamond libraries, like Percussion.
Now if I use my Mac to download Hollywood Diamond Percussion onto a FAT32 drive (the one that came with Pianos Platinum), can I then simply plug the FAT32 drive into a Windows laptop and copy the files to the aforementioned NTFS-drive for backup?

Hey Fleer,

yes, that's possible. Hollywood Orchestral Percussion Diamond
is 70GB in size.

Please note that FAT32 might not be quite suitable for the download.
It can either throw an error, or the download might not work at all,
since FAT32 maxes out at 4GiB file sizes.

If you're using exFAT, then the size limit is not of concern, and it can
be also read on Mac and Windows. Pianos Platinum can be redownloaded,
and please remember that formatting drives will wipe all data.

Cheers.
