This project aims to provide a full-featured exFAT file system implementation for Unix-like systems. It consists of a FUSE module (fuse-exfat) and a set of utilities (exfat-utils).

Supported operating systems:

  • GNU/Linux
  • Mac OS X 10.5 or later
  • FreeBSD

Most GNU/Linux distributions already have fuse-exfat and exfat-utils in their repositories, so you can just install and use them. The next chapter describes how to compile them from source.


To build this project on GNU/Linux you need to install the following packages:

On Mac OS X:

  • autoconf
  • automake
  • pkg-config
  • Xcode (legacy versions include autotools but their versions are too old)

On OpenBSD:

  • git
  • autoconf (set AUTOCONF_VERSION environment variable)
  • automake (set AUTOMAKE_VERSION environment variable)

Get the source code, change directory and compile:

git clone
cd exfat
autoreconf --install

Then install driver and utilities (from root):

make install

You can remove them using this command (from root):

make uninstall


Modern GNU/Linux distributions (with util-linux 2.18 or later) will mount exFAT volumes automatically. Anyway, you can mount manually (from root):

mount.exfat-fuse /dev/spec /mnt/exfat

where /dev/spec is the device file, /mnt/exfat is a mountpoint.


If you have any questions, issues, suggestions, bug reports, etc. please create an issue. Pull requests are also welcome!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
