Which Format Is Best For A Microsdxc Card?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a 64 gb microSDXC card for my SurfacePro. Generally, I have a practice of always reformatting a card or drive before I use it. The card is obviously in exFAT, but what are folks' opinions about whether it would be best to leave it in exFAT or instead switch it to NTFS?

I'm pretty sure both will work, but I do tend to format mine as NTFS; no particular reason I can think of, I just do.

From what I've read, exFAT works best on flash drives. Apparently,  exFat has lower overhead and a smaller footprint. Since exFat was made for flash and lower powered devices, I don't think you'll go wrong with exFat
