    Thanks for letting us know about the formatter tool by the SD Association! I think it fixed my slowness issues, which I had when I formatted to NTFS (4 KB allocation unit size). The tool reformatted it to exFAT with a 128 KB allocation unit size.

    I too have a 128GB microSD card formatted with NTFS mounted as D: with my Documents, Music, Pictures, Video, and Download folders, as well as my Outlook .pst files. I have been using this for several years with no issues at all. I do periodically copy these folders to an external hard drive and create an image of my Surface Pro to that same external hard drive.
