I have a DroboPro which consists of four "partitions"
Two of which is 2 tb each, one is 4 tb and the last one is 1 tb.
All are HFS+
My computers are mostly Macs, with the exception of the PC that my school gave to me which is a PoS. I use it whenever I'm not doing anything serious, which is all the time.
So my question is. What is the disadvantage of using exFAT instead of HFS+.
The only thing I can think of is that it doesn't save some of the file attributes, or permissions and the fact that Mac OS X at the moment can't (Can it?) repair exFAT volumes.
The pro is that its interoperable, and I do have a PC that can fix the exFAT volume (If Macs can't. I don't quite remember if it can and I'm not at home now.)
By the way, I store all of my data there, one volume is for my photos, another for data, another for time machine backup and the last one for media.
At the time of this post, Data Robotics doesn't support exFAT yet. But I can still format it via disk utility.
