    Mounting exfat and ntfs-3 filesystems with fstab

    This is useful for microsd cards and other media that uses Windows filesystems. Type gpart show /dev/da0 to see if the filesystem is based on exfat or ntfs. exfat can show up as an ntfs-3 filesystem, because they are referred to by the same partition code of 0x07. For exfat, install...

I just want to verify if this...
