    There's no such a thing as exclusively exFAT corruption, FAT32 is corrupting as well. The latter just a little more durable due to the second copy of a filesystem tree so it can survive in more cases. If you don't use actively writing to a microSD homebrew apps, you most likely won't face corruptions at all, nor on FAT32 neither on exFAT. But if you do, the FAT32 is an obvious choice.

    Not true, If you use Atmosphere and load a theme or plugin or program such as amiiswap or some other homebrew or game that crashes, Atmosphere writes a crash log to the micro sd card, due to the fact your switch has just crashed - this writing can wreak havok to the exfat file allocation table and likely cause corruption in your card. Some of the file entries hex value is changed to E5, and the system no longer knows where to find the file.

    Until Atmosphere or other software/homebrew disables logging or writing to sd card, you'll always have a high chance of file allocation table corruption when using exfat, that's why fat32 is better just now, simply because there's always a backup of the file allocation table, so the files can be found from that backup table if the other one is corrupted.

    Is it possible to move the discussion about ExFat vs Fat32 to another thread? I agree that this topic is important but it is derailing the discussion about figuring the issues with Autoloader.

    On my end, i figured out 2 XCIs that i needed to delete to prevent the XCI album to crash. I also renamed all my XCIs and removed other layeredfs files in my SXOS installation.

    Unfortunately, the Autoloader still crashes randomly even if it is just idle on the game select screen. I just removed the autoloader and will wait for a more stable version

    B-but it's the SX OS thread... And if you talk about the Atmosphere, I do agree there's no reason to use exFAT on it.

    update- i removed this as well. maybe it works great if you have a few XCI's or something, but i have a TB of stuff, and even trying to let it scan for a couple hours it never seems to stop crashing eventually and ramdomly.

    right now its just too good to be true but hopefully they fix it. i almost wish it fully worked before being announced

    pity as it seemed to have great potential
