Fedora 24 – Mounting EX-fat partitions

Recently,  i migrated back to FC after a prolonged use of Windows-8 & Windows-10.  After trying to use a Flash drive formatted with the EXFAT filesystem, i discovered FC does not have the necessary drivers installed natively due to some licensing drama with Microsoft. (Typical)

Use the following commands to install the Fuse EXFAT handler, and mount your Flash Drive (sdc in my case)

 

dnf install fuse-exfat -y
mount /dev/sdc1 /media/usbflash
