    So here's a quick summary

    • Purchased a 4TB external HDD
    • Erased and created 3 seperate partition (1 MAC OS Extended Journaled, 2 EXFAT)
    • Connected External HDD to Airport Extreme latest version
    • Tried to view the 3 partitions in Finder, I can only see the 1 MAC OS Extended partition, the EXFAT partitions do NOT appear

    Any ideas?

    I doubt the Airport supports ExFAT. The only reason to format ExFAT is if you plug the drive into a Windows box. Why did you format with ExFAT if you are plugging the drive into an Airport?
