exFAT is Microsoft proprietary shit.

The problem isn't with exFAT, it is with fsck_exfat, which I'm fairly certain Microsoft didn't write.

chkdsk on Windows manages to clean exFAT volumes just fine without using up 8gb+ of memory.

yeah sometimes I'll boot into Windows just to clean the drives :-(

yeah but its the only real alternative for R/W support in OSX and Windows for large volumes. I've had corruption issues with NTFS and HFS+ drivers :-(
