exFat on linux

make sure exfat fuse and utils are installed on the system

emerge -av sys-fs/exfat-utils sys-fs/fuse-exfat sys-fs/dosfstools

exFAT seems not handle well the switches -pgo that relate to permissions. When using standard switches -avgh, it will trigger errors
rsync: mkstemp “/run/media/3461-3338/ki.txt.ws6eA5” failed: Function not implemented (38)

Instead when coping use the following flags

rsync -rltDv [SRC] [DESTINATION]
