    Haven't had an issue like that myself with ex-fat but will reformat to NTFS to avoid it happening to me. Thank you for the heads up. (now where to store 3TB of photos... temporarily.)

    I just stumbled across this.  After checking, yes indeed my 5Tb external drive is definitely ExFAT formatted :( .

    Well, just like Cory, I'll have to move files to a temporary storage, then reformat.  Dang it!!  But thanks a lot Max (OP) for the heads-up on the issue!!
