Repairing a Corrupted Mac OSX ExFAT Partition

I had some issues with corrupted exFAT partition that Disk Utility said it couldn’t repair.

Then I finally found a solution.

Run following command in terminal

sudo fsck_exfat -d disk2s2

Where disk2s2 is ExFAT partition.

Then it will ask you

Main boot region needs to be updated. Yes/No?

Reply Yes.

Now, You can then run repair in the OSX Disk Utility and the partition should be restored.

Isn’t it Easy fix ?

But Why ExFAT and NTFS support is so bad on Mac OSX?
