The exFAT file system is the successor to FAT32 in the FAT family of file systems. The exFAT file system is a new file system format that addresses the growing needs of mobile personal storage on different operating systems. It handles large files, such as those that are used for media storage, and it enables interoperability between desktop computers and devices, such as portable media devices. Because of this functionality, you can copy files between the desktop and external devices or between the desktop and other operating systems.

Users of Windows XP SP2 and SP3 are currently able to download the xFat driver here.

After you download the file, you will be able to format external media in the exFAT format. Additionally, you will be able to format external media that is larger than 32 GB, and exFAT-formatted media will be recognized on the computer.

The exFAT file system incorporates several improvements over FAT32. These improvements include the following advances:

- Support for very large files and storage devices
- Support for performance improvements
- Support for extensibility features for future innovation
- Added compatibility for flash media

The exFAT file system uses 64 bits to describe file size. This allows for applications that depend on very large files. The exFAT file system also allows for clusters as large as 32MB, effectively enabling very large storage devices.

The exFAT file system has been already adopted in the latest "SDXC" standard released by the SD association.

Thanks The Hive for very fresh news (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Vista uses NTFS6, we need an update like WindowsXP-KB955704-x86-ENU.exe to make xp32 fully use ntfs6 (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

What (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/w00t.gif) is the problem?

  • Open a console window.
  • Navigate to where the WindowsXP-KB955704-x86-ENU.exe file is
  • input:
    QUOTE
    WindowsXP-KB955704-x86-ENU.exe /x
  • and press [ENTER]


You will be prompted for a directory where to extract the files.

Remember, extract files from a KB:
CODE
WindowsXP-KB955704-x86-ENU.exe /x:KB955704


I did not get that comment when I first read it.

Yes, basically most if not all MS KB's files are self-extracting/self-executing files, based on SFXCAB.EXE compression, that accepts the /x parameter to ONLY extract.

For the record, most (but not this one) KB's .exe's can be normally DIRECTLY be opened (and files within extracted) with 7-zip.

This particular file is a bit more complex as most files are renamed/patched on the fly according to contents of the _sfx_manifest_ inside the outer archive, according to SP level and language.
