mount.exfat-fuse - mount an exFAT file system
mount.exfat-fuse [ -d ] [ -n ] [ -o options ] [ -V ] [ -v ] device dir
mount.exfat-fuse is a free exFAT file system implementation with write support. exFAT is a simple file system created by Microsoft. It is intended to replace FAT32 removing some of its limitations. exFAT is a standard FS for SDXC memory cards.
COMMAND LINE OPTIONS¶
Command line options available:
FILE SYSTEM OPTIONS¶
- Set the umask (the bitmask of the permissions that are not present, in octal). The default is 0.
- Set the umask for directories only.
- Set the umask for files only.
- Set the owner for all files and directories. The default is the owner of the current process.
- Set the group for all files and directories. The default is the group of the current process.
- Mount the file system in read only mode.
- Do not update access time when file is read.
Zero is returned on successful mount. Any other code means an error.
exFAT is a case-insensitive file system. Some things can behave unexpectedly, e.g. directory renaming that changes only case of some characters:
$ mv FOO Foo
mv: cannot move ’FOO’ to a subdirectory of itself, ’Foo/FOO’
This happens because mv finds that destination exists (for case-insensitive file systems FOO and Foo are the same thing) and adds source basename to the destination. The file system gets rename("FOO", "Foo/FOO") syscall and returns an error.
