Is it safe to hibernate Windows XP if ext2fsd is used to mount an ext2 filesystem read&write?
I do not pretend to boot Linux and mount the filesystem after hibernating Windows XP, because I guess there could be some issues with this approach. Instead of it I'd like to know if it is safe to hibernate and restore Windows XP if ext2fsd is used.
Regards, and nice work with ext2fsd 0.21
I can only tell my experience on a WXP SP1 system, mounting read-only an ext3 partition: yes, it works. I can hibernate WXP while the ext3 part is mounted, then reboot WXP recovering hibernation, and the ext3 part is still there, mounted and accessible. Giancarlo
I just tried the latest version 0.22 with my 128M usb-disk.
First I deleted some files, and copied some new files, then hibernated.
After the powerring on to boot my xp pro, everything seemed ok. No problems at all.
But for big disk/partition, I didn't check it.
Later I'll check it again. When my big disks are availiable.
