- Set this to the default input/output character set you'd
- like exFAT to use. It should probably match the character set
- that most of your exFAT filesystems use, and can be overridden
- with the "iocharset" mount option for exFAT filesystems.
+ Set this to the default input/output character set to use for
+ converting between the encoding is used for user visible filename and
+ UTF-16 character that exfat filesystem use. and can be overridden with
+ the "iocharset" mount option for exFAT filesystems.
