Any good way to get NTFS support? I was using NtfsSd for a while https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....oyaxai.ntfssd but it hasn't been updated for 4.2. Just wondering if anyone has a better solution.
Ext4 isn't supported natively by windows, therefore leading to compatibility issues with most of the worlds computers unless you install additional software (effectively defeating the purpose). exFAT on the other hand is more prone to corruption than NTFS. NTFS utilizes a redundant MFT record number (useful for recovering damaged MFT files). Since SD cards are essentially removable media, it is wise to build and maintain your foundation upon the format with the lowest chance of data loss.
My concern is that NTFS might not play well with android. Yes, it usually works fine with Linux, but NTFS is not an open source filesystem and any 3rd party driver written for it has the potential to cause problems and data loss.
Do you expect to frequently remove the SD card from your device? If not, ext4 would work fine (mounted via usb on your drive), and also provides superior journaling to NTFS.
