exFAT, NTFS, Mount Windows Shares

Pi 64-bit:

  • The system already has ntfs-3g installed, but I’ve failed to get mounted and working NTFS formatted USB drive
  • For exFat is still the same
sudo apt install exfat-fuse

Pi 32-bit: Let’s add exFat and NTFS support to our Raspberry Pi:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install exfat-fuse
sudo apt install ntfs-3g

To mount Windows shared directory:

sudo mount -t cifs //ip_address/share_name /home/pi/local_dir -o username=win_user,password=win_pswd,uid=local_user,gid=local_group

Without uid & gid, the directory has been mounted as read-only

Raspberry Pi 4 Overclocking

Did not run any benchmarks, but it seems to run faster. Better use a special case with active (preferred) or passive cooling (in my case, the system was unstable at 2GHz)

So, run editor:

sudo nano /boot/config.txt

Pi 32-bit: find [pi4] and add after for 2GHz (64-bit Buster: there is a line #arm_freq=800):
