    Phoronix: Linux's exFAT Driver Will Soon Be Able To Delete Big Files Much Faster

    For those making use of Linux's modern exFAT file-system, a significant optimization is on the way for when deleting files with the "dirsync" mount option set...

      "modern exFAT file-system"
      That was a good one.
      And I thought FAT was ... acceptable at its time, but later it was just two crutches to walk upon. Then VFAT came and yeah, well, it was attached crutches to the crutches, so you could make larger steps. And exFAT, well, crutches to the crutches to the...

      Still glad for any FS support that gets better, you never know if and when you might actually hit a media with these kinds of file system.
      However, I would have been much happier if industry hadn't accepted yet another FAT system; for there are better things. exFAT still isn't that backward compatible (is it?) so you need new drivers to access it. Moreover, industry might be forced to pay royalties to MS for every digital camera or whatnot that can read or write those media. (Or at least if they don't have their very own implementation.)
      Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

        exFAT was made to overcome the 4GB file size limitation.

          Extended FAT, exFAT. It does, that's the whole point of this new FAT.

                  You are correct there. Askeevy420 and you have now both showed their age. Well....I have Inagaddadavidda on vinyl.

                    In my experience, multiple distros and desktop environments prefer user space filesystems for transient mounts (fuse, gvfs, kio, etc.). I assume they do this for compatibility and ease of use, but it's absolute garbage for performance.

                    I recall setting up a debian box just a few years ago, where I wanted to sync a media share from the NAS. Being lazy, I just browsed the samba share from Gnome Nautilus, and was only getting about 40MBps transfer speed. After killing gvfs and setting up a kernel cifs mount, the same transfer was maxing out the gigabit NIC at over 110MBps.
