As acknowledged for WD TV, cloud we please have exFAT support?
To support OSX, Win and SmartTVs at the same time I’d choosen exFAT for my external USB drives, as probably a lot of users did. This is the only partition type which handles > 4 GB files AND is supported by newer and newest OSX/Win by default, useful especially for videos.
Due to the WD My Cloud (Mirror 12 TB here) not supporting exFAT I would have to use a temporary drive which is formatted HFS+ and slowly copy TB after TB before I can attach the drive to the WD My Cloud where I would have to copy those files again.
In my scenario, I would have expected the following to work:
Attach a USB 3.0 hub to WD My Cloud with 4x 2.0 TB WD Passport Ultra USB 3.0 drives, copy the files. Done.
Pick an empty 2 TB drive, format HFS+, copy files from exFAT drive, attach to WD My Cloud and copy (again). Repeat with next 3 drives.
This takes a lot more time, really. Speaking of something like 10 hrs compared to 100 hours now for the entire process.
If I’d known before, I probably wouldn’t have bought the My Cloud 12 TB as this is really a show stopper for a NAS not to support on of the most spread (*) large-file partition type. * = speaking of interoperability.

Would love to see this idea getting some response, best implemented before I finished this copying process within the next 1-2 weeks
