Operating Systems that Support the exFAT File System

Posted by VTOP-eMall on

SDXC Memory Cards and 256GB CompactFlash cards are formatted natively in the exFAT file system. Flash Drives may also be formatted in exFAT. The operating system must support the exFAT file system in order for these devices to function properly.
