Microsoft yesterday pushed out a new OneDrive update for users on Windows 10 PCs and Mobile. After taking the latest OneDrive update lot of users started complaining that they were unable to save any file formats like exFAT and FAT32 other than NTFS.

The latest update for the OneDrive app effectively removed support for older file systems. Users who have formatted their PCs found that they were unable to sync to the earlier drive.

Microsoft in a statement to our Colleagues Neowin stated:

“Microsoft OneDrive wants to ensure users have the best possible sync experience on Windows, which is why OneDrive maintains the industry standard of support for NTFS. Microsoft discovered a warning message that should have existed was missing when a user attempted to store their OneDrive folder on a non-NTFS filesystem – which was immediately remedied. Nothing has changed in terms of official support and all OneDrive folders will continue to need to be located on a drive with the NTFS filesystem.”

Now with Mcirosoft having decided to maintain the standard support for NTFS, users would now need to format the drive to NTFS and sync the OneDrive or would need to start using a new Cloud Storage service other than OneDrive.
