    Since this topic seems to be important for many, please allow me to clear something regarding that small quoted text:

    Data corruption can happen on any filesystem, as data flows from/to RAM and storage, if there is a power loss, or some other external issue (hardware / software / OS related) make it impossible for this active data to reach completely, then we get data loss / corruption. But there is no 100% corruption-free device or storage, the filesystems have evolved to provide better protection for this, but won't completely remove the possibility of corruption.

    Now a note to everyone: You are free to use whatever filesystem you like, for whatever reason, the fact that you use it won't make it better or worse.

    PS: It would be a good time now to keep this thread on track, talking about "Autoloader v1.10" ^___^u

    SeeYa!
    :D

    You can't have it both ways you want to "keep this thread on track" but then you talk nonsense. Search gbatemp you won't find one thread where someone says "Fat32 corrupted my sd card" you will find literally hundreds from exfat. That's not a coincidence regardless of what you think. Devs like m4xw say use Fat32, Retroarch devs says use Fat32. These are devs that have spent hundreds if not thousands of hours on the inner workings of the Nintendo Switch, they know more than you.

    There's a bug when they made the system in exfat file system, it's been said for over a year now.

    That's old news and not the case anymore

    Exfat here with emunands / emuMMCs - 600+ Mods later not a single corruption

    Exfat it prone to corruption on PC side by not ejecting media etc (Can be fixed in seconds in most cases)

    Nope you're wrong, I had corruption on the Switch itself from an error. I always eject properly.

    I don't care how many mods you've done I'll take the word of m4xw and countless threads of people saying "I'm on exfat and my sd card is corrupted" as well as my own personal experience.

    There is no "old news" when it comes to Switch's file system nothing at all has changed Nintendo hasn't improved the file system at all so you made that up. The only way they can improve it is with a new Switch model. Nintendo has zero reasons to improve it though because the corruption happens on homebrew on hacked consoles not on real Switch games.

    Exfat users always have an excuse why they have corruption funny how Fat32 needs no excuses. It's just the logical file system to use to avoid all corruption, that's a fact.

    Have I expressed disrespect to you in some way for you to say I talk "nonsense"?

    What I wrote, is not a thought, I am talking about a technological fact of universal filesystems, not about the "Nintendo Switch" only. And you just met me in a couple of posts and already know if somebody else have knowledge than me? What I wrote is the reality of data, there is no perfect filesystem / storage, it hasn't been created yet.

    I thought I would be able to collaborate in this scene, maybe share some tools, like I did for the PS3 scene, but if people will be like this, I better spend my time doing something else.

    Take care!

    SeeYa!

    If someone really cares about it here's a google search for you, there's tons of places talking about exfat corruption.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=exf...rome..69i57.2996j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    Here's CTCaer (maker of Hekate)

    [​IMG]

    I guess he doesn't know what he's talking about though, he's only one of the biggest reasons why Nintendo Switch is hacked, and nothing has changed since 2018 it's not possible with a system update to improve the file system.

    Yeah I made that up, hombrew software(S) have never been updated since hack was released?

    Exfat users always have an excuse? Well my excuse is it works 100% for me and my clients

    It really comes down to user error in 99% of cases

    The choice is there and I go with the better option exfat with no issues

    I don't believe you've modded any systems because you just don't know what you're talking about. I could say I've modded 601 systems it doesn't mean anything. Firmware updates cannot improve the file systems. Why would Nintendo need to improve it? It's a homebrew issue on hacked consoles not legit Switch games.

    CTCaer and m4xw on my side, so I win by a landslide.

    Sorry you don't know what you are talking about.

    I don't care if you believe me or not.

    We already know exfat issues are a thing of the past so stop spreading old info.

    Reminds of the oh no don't cut the back plate to fit trinket or else switch will overheat.

    But it's not possible corruption on Exfat doesn't exist, you must not have updated since 2018!

    This happened one page ago, yeah really old.

    Exfat on micro sd is awesome if u use Retroarch. I had to never reformat repeatedly with no probs at all. File size for installs is irrelevant if u use an exfat usb/hard drive for installs/xci booting which works great.... Exfat on microSD though ... awesome!

    Says over 600+ modded happy exfat customers - And yeah a few of those exfatters are from gbatemp

    Exfat gang 4 life

    Now this is more recent than yours so case closed

    User erros, bad card, fake card, not ejecting, power failures etc - Will cause corruption

    You should go crawl back in whatever hole you came from because I keep making the arguments that you keep changing "exfat corruption doesn't exist "exfat corruption was fixed a long time ago" look silly.

    Thank you that's good advice, and no it hasn't changed there's not one bit of proof it's changed at all except one person saying it.

    I hope everyone using exfat and homebrew corrupts and loses 100+GB because they deserve it.

    2011-0301 error solution (if your card is NOT corrupted): if you have MANY MANY files on your microSD (ex. more than 50.000 including cover arts, screenshots, etc) you will get that error on boot even if your microSD is perfectly working (FAT32/exFat). I suppose a new version avoiding the scans of those "file-rich" folders will be released soon.

    Exfat corruption does exist, If you are using an app (atmosphere for example), and the app writes logs or data such as a save to the micro sd card, and the switch crashes - the file allocation table an become corrupted.

    Horizon OS Fat32 driver doesn't suffer from this, however the EXfat driver does - there's a write up on the Switch wiki about this - and a few posts on this forum explaining that already.

    Even with the latest Firmware, this problem persists - but it's down to Nintendo's firmware (exfat driver). I have had corruption happen quite a few times on exfat while 'testing/modding/making' software for the Switch, (using original Sandisk microsd). If you want to test yourself - load a dodgy module or old amiiswap nro file (on on the github) and make your switch crash a couple of times, then go to your games and do a data check - I'll bet some of them are corrupted.

    This doesn't happen on fat32 though, as the file allocation table has a backup created, so if your device crashes, it gets restored upon reboot (as far as I know).
