    I have a 32GB mSDHC card and not sure how to properly format it for use with Gateway. What should the format type be and cluster size? Thoughts appreciated :)

    I have Windows 10. Only format options are exFAT and NTFS?

    Can I use standard Windows 10 format utility? For FAT32, what should Allocation Unit Size be?

    For Windows 10, the format options are NTFS, FAT32 (Default), and exFAT...

    I was going to use the Windows 10 Format Utility. For exFAT format, what should I use for Allocation Unit Size?
