I have a second hard drive in my macbook pro that needs to be shared between Win7 and OSX. What format would be better? NTFS+OSX Drivers or exFAT?

I'm looking for least head ache inducing solution, along with compatibility of course.

Thank you.

I did exFAT on an external USB drive and it seems to work well in both Windows 7 and OS X. How are you running Windows 7? Bootcamp or VM? I ask because in VM you have other options.
