I've been trying to find a list of file/folder properties that are available in NTFS but NOT available in exFAT. The reason I want to know this is because I'm trying to copy a few files from a NTFS drive to an exFAT drive, and I get a warning that says something like "certain properties for this file cannot be copied," but doesn't tell me which ones. This happens on a few video files, and a few *.eml files.

It'd be nice to know what I'm losing...

Well, usually you'd get that error when you have files with custom Access Control Lists configured, or on encrypted or compressed files when moving to fat32. As far as I know, exfat doesn't support those features either so that'd be my guess.
