A last note, if you are also using the flash drive for porting files

Strictly speaking, this is not true. There is now native support for
NTFS (both read and write) in Mac OS that's been there for a while now
but that is disabled by default. There are also third-party tools
available for earlier Mac OS versions that do not have native support
for NTFS. A quick web search on "Mac OS NTFS Support" in the search
engine of your choice will bring up the information you need should you
wish to enable read-write access to NTFS volumes. Read access was
available ahead of write access.
