Ext2Fsd Comments

Not good with Windows 10

Comment by luminex
about Ext2Fsd · Jan 2017

Tried Ext2Fsd on fully up to date windows 10 and I won't recommend this app. It works, but its driver or service causes conflicts with windows drivers. Especially freezes NVidia drivers and makes system shutdown take a long time.


Can anyone share your experience with this software?

The only reviews I found were from 2013, and not exactly very motivating. So I'm hoping things are looking better by now.


Work with ext3 formatted TrueCrypt volumes

about Ext2Fsd ·

I use this program so I can share an ext3 formatted TrueCrypt volume on an external drive between Windows and Linux clients. It works great. The volume manager utility will not see the TrueCrypt drive but the Windows filesystem driver allow me to view and access files on the ext3 partition just fine.
