You may experience some Mac devices given you a error messsge when using ExFAT format to write a file into it.


This is due to the Finder will add attributes to the file before transfer and making the file is different from original for coping. You can solve this issue by:

Method 1. Change your storage device into NTFS format.

Method 2. Use the cp -X file-name command to copy the file.


Or use **cp -rX floder-name** command to copy the folder.
