Need help, Files and folders made in linux on external drive invisible to windows 10

Greetings, as the title states i am having trouble viewing any files or folders made or edited in Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon in windows 10. the behavior started after updating both Windows 10 and mint. i am unsure if its mint or windows causing the issue. If any one has any experience with this or has a solution i would appreciate the help. Thank you for your time.

Which filesystem did you format your external drive?

it was Fat32 ive recently reformatted it to ntfs, i am restoring the files to it as of this post and will check and see if that has helped.
