I have an external USB drive connected to my Ubuntu 12.04.5 server, which has been formatted with exFAT filesystem (after I installed the required packages like fuse-exfat and exfat-util). My drive works perfectly without any issue.
But when I try to connect this drive to a Windows 10 host, it is not recognized properly by the system (Windows is not able to detect the filesystem). I have read somewhere that the same happens if the drive has been formatted from a Mac, and the "only" solution was to always format a drive from Windows, if you want to use it on other operating systems.
Am I the only one experimenting this? Is it because I made sure to create an "aligned" partition when I formatted it (no remember exactly what it was, but I did to get rid of a warning in Ubuntu when I mount it).
The version of exfat-utils and exfat-fuse: 1.0.1-1~ubuntu12.04.1.
And the warning I got wasn't on mount after all, but at the creation of the partition using parted with mkpart:
Warning: The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance.
So I followed this guide to create an aligned partition: http://rainbow.chard.org/2013/01/30/how-to-align-partitions-for-best-performance-using-parted/
