The driver also has been optimised for performance with modern Linux kernels and offers lower CPU memory consumption. Paragon’s exFAT technology can be implemented into Linux, Android and other embedded operating systems, as well as RTOS such as QNX and Integrity. exFAT is covered by Microsoft patent rights and to devices and antivirus, forensic and data recovery solutions without the need to obtain Microsoft licensing. The solution comes with full technical support and can be customised.

The Android/Linux exFAT driver comes with additional tools:

1. “mkexfat” exFAT formatting tool.

2. “chkexat” exFAT file system check/repair tool whose repair efficiency is comparable to native Windows CHKDSK.

3. fsutil – a partial analogue of the Windows “fsutil”, that provides information about the volume and manages special file attributes.

4. Integration package for Android OEMs for quick integration of Paragon’s driver and utilities into the assembly of the Android image, enabling auto-mounting and formatting of SD cards >32 GB in exFAT in accordance with the requirements of the SD Association. The package is fully updated with the new Android versions releases.

Paragon exFAT driver is based on the company’s proprietary File System Link (formerly, UFSD) cross-platform technology that enables any device to communicate and gain access to storage media regardless of file system type.
