    Exfat file system Vs NTFS file system...


    Hi all,
    Here is a critical problem i have faced. I have inserted my pendrive in an laptop with OS X. As it was in ntfs format the data were shown but writting into this couldn't be done. So I format it to exfat format to get some data. When I insert it into my laptop it was giving a message to fomat disk.Then i again format it to exfat format.But the irritating thing is that now memory size of my 16gb pendrive becomes 200mb.What shall i do right now to get 16gb pendrive?

    I also use a Mac OS X and it has issues with NTFS, haven't found a suitable program [free] to add in so I use FAT32 formatted drives. Windows, Mac OS X and Linux can use them without problems but Windows has issues in not being able to format a drive over 32GB as FAT32 so I usually do it with my Linux machine or I boot to a GPARTED LiveCD disc and use it to partition as needed then format as desired. I now have a 250GB External USB HDD for use on all my computers [recycle 2.5" Notebooks drives into portable cases]. If wanting/needing higher capacity just for my Mac OS X I'd go with a WDC Passport for Mac [have a 750GB and 1TB for Windows and Linux only].
