Is exFAT supported?

Question

Hi all.

I'm trying out DrivePool and seem to be having an issue. I have an external drive formatted to exFAT which I want to mirror on another external exFAT drive. However, neither one of the exFAT drives is visible in DrivePool.

 

I've tried to look thought manuals and documentation but cannot find any definitive 'yes' or 'no' regarding whether exFAT is supported. Certain forum posts mention exFAT, implying it is supported, but for me, they're invisible. I went ahead and formatted the empty drive to NTFS as a test, and it showed up, no issue, so it seems that exFAT itself is the problem.

 

Can anyone clarify if exFAT is ok to use and if yes, why might I be not seeing them?

Hi! DrivePool only works with NTFS or ReFS formatted drives (there's also an advanced setting to allow both in the same pool but it's not recommended outside of migrating between the two formats); exFAT is not supported.
