    Micro SD Card? exFat or NTFS and allocation size?

    I had to convert my 64 GB to NTFS so symbolic links would work. Not sure if it is still needed with 8.1. I have converted MANY flash cards to NTFS and never had a problem.

    Android apps on a Surface

    I keep trying Bluestacks and while it is getting better I find it is indeed a Beta product. While I only have a few apps that I really care about on my Nexus 5 phone, they are not in the MS apps store. Hmmm - maybe I better check again. Toy Man

    NTFS. It is required if you make a symbolic link to it.
