Windows 10 and CF cards
3

This isn't intended as a scare story, but some friends of mine working in the film industry have discovered that Windows 10 has some problems with CF cards. If you try and read or copy certain media files from a CF card using Windows 10, the file system becomes corrupted and the whole folder, or potentially the whole card, becomes unreadable.

I don't know if X3F files for JPG files are affected, but even if not, be aware that putting any other type of file on the card may cause problems.

This doesn't affect SD cards, but as our Sigma SLRs use CF cards be careful if you are intending to try Win 10.
