Create ExFAT volume?

Hi folks, using the public beta and I would like to format a drive in my TB3 Thunderbay 4 as ExFAT, so I can share files between macOS and Bootcamp Windows. I don't see this option available. Is it at all possible? For what it's worth, the drive is currently formatted as APFS.

No, you need to zero disk with SoftRAID, then use Apple Disk Utlity to erase it as FAT.

Another option is HFS and use MacDrive. MacDrive does not yet support APFS in Windows, but that is a future feature being worked on.

@softraid-support I think I have an app on Windows 10 that supports HFS+ on Windows, now that you mention it. 

Short answer is no way to format as ExFAT in SoftRAID. Thanks for the tips!

MsDos is all we support at present. I suspect we could add exFat later this year.
