For the best experience, it's highly recommended that you run FATXplorer on Windows 7 or higher (Windows 8 is not recommended). FATXplorer requires a minimum of 4GB of free space on the drive it's installed to. FATXplorer works the same as a standard Windows format drive, but it's worth mentioning that FATXplorer cannot format the Master Boot Record on Xbox 360 disks to the point where they can be used in a modded console.
The archive includes all features that are currently available in FATXplorer, from the original FATXplorer release in May 2015 to the current version. There are many features that will likely never be added, such as the ability to lock and unlock Xbox HDDs. This is not an exhaustive list, but includes everything that I have personally tested, and everything that is currently available in FATXplorer.
FATXplorer 3.0 also includes a new range of features, including:
Additional OS support for FATXplorer (CFG, LGX, SAX)
Improved support for Xbox GB drives (including HSM 5TB and 10TB)
Improved and expanded logging system (most logs are now Dump.txt files, some are in a log.txt file)
A long awaited feature: a complete archive of all FATXplorer features

The 3.0 release should hopefully be out sometime in 2019 and will see the return of FATXplorer to the dark theme. Other features include a change to the file browser and graph views, a new resize/move/rescale button that allows for easier interactivity, and a visual indicator that informs you when the last sync was performed.
Also added the ability to write configuration files to a USB drive and read configuration files from a USB drive (and vice versa). This feature is disabled by default as USB devices are not supported by FATXplorer but can be enabled in the configuration files. All USB devices are treated as mass storage devices and will show in the file browser as such.
The beta will also include a number of smaller changes and new features that will make FATXplorer much better. These include a new file open/save dialog, the ability to move folders into an existing directory, a built-in Task Scheduler that is invoked through the gui, the ability to queue multiple projects for execution through a set of different actions (the 'Project Manager'), and the ability to use multiple cores for file operations.
In one of my streams yesterday, I indicated that I would not be doing a beta if I did not have at least a few beta testers. I've met my goal on that front, and I would like to express my gratitude to FatXplorer's beta testers and users for the last few months. I am now going to ship v3.0 beta 16, and I'll be shipping an update to v3.0 to fix the issue I had reported to the app . 827ec27edc
