Microsoft created the exFAT (Extended File Alocation Table) to make up for the inadequacies of FAT32 & NTFS, as it can hold large files, large numbers of files & use very large partitions. Supported on Linux, Windows, MacOS and many other devices, it is one of the most compatible filesystems. A good choice when you need to share a removable device between many systems.

exFAT FS does not use journaling. Data on such a filesystem is vulnerable to irreparable corruption due to improper ejection or power outage.


To use exFAT, you need to install the exfat-utils package. You can do this using your favorite package manager or with this command:

pamac install exfat-utils
