    Numbers of my ExFAT partition is shown differently from Mac


    I have a 18 gb exfat partition in my external drive.

    On my Mac:
    Capacity: 17.86 GB
    Used: 15.83 GB
    Available: 2.03 GB

    On my Windows (exact same files)
    Capacity: 16.6 GB
    Used: 14.7 GB
    Free: 1.88 GB

    Which is correct?

    :)

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

    exFat

    If anyone hasn't heard of exFat, take a look at this. exFAT - Wikipedia

    Just swapped to exFat on all my portable drives. I got really frustrated with 4Gb file limitations on my portable drives, as well as limited partition sizes. And i don't use Linux or any other OS to much (Tho i should probably have a Linux box built just for formatting drives). And now that there's a patch for XP as well to support compatibility, i believe its worth it.

    Formating to exFAT

    Hi Taylor,

    If you want to format an external hard drive or USB flash drive in exFAT, you can follow these steps:



    • Press and hold Windows key + x on your keyboard. This open the context menu.
    • Select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type format g: /FS:exFAT and then Enter to begin formatting the G drive as exFAT
    For any query, feel free to reach us.
