    My question is described below:

    I have two disks, external hard disk and removable disk. They are formatted with EXT4.

    I put the same image in the disks, and use Ext2Fsd to mount the disks.

    I open the file in win8, and it will default open by the windows store app : photos.

    It will be success to open if the file is in the Ext4's removable disk.

    It will be failed to open if the file is in the Ext4's external hard disk.

    I don't know why it will be failed to open if the file is in the Ext4's external hard disk.

    Does anyone have similar experiences?

      Hello,
      I have a dual boot laptop with Windows 8.1 and Linux.
      I installed ext2fsd to share an ext3 partition on hard disk.
      Previously I installed the version 0.52 with the option "force writing" but when I cut and pasted a file on the partition, using windows, the computer crashed.
      I then installed the version 0.53pre that I found online and I solved this problem.
      However, when I open a jpg on the ext3 partition with the app photos I get an error reading.
      Best regards, Vito.
