#7 Ext4 support


It's already possible to mount ext4 filesystems, but if Windows writes anything on them, fsck goes nuts and files might get lost.

    It is so necessary since Ubuntu 9.04 and other Linux distributions uses ext4 as the file system.

    I hope that you will soon issue a new release with Ext4 support. With Ubuntu 9.04 and Ext4, it is no more possible to read my Linux HDD from Windows. The names of subdirectories are faulty and they show no files.

    I also vote for this one!

    I do have a couple of different scenarios where reading ext4 from windows would be a blessing, instead of loading up a linux VM just to access some files...

    I can't use ext4 because it is unreadable under Windows. Please, add support of ext4!

    Please add ext4 support.

    Agree with previous posters. Since Ubuntu has elected to use ext4 as their default file system, it is now imperative that support for it be added to ext2fsd. Otherwise, the utility is well on the way to becoming obsolete and unusable. As things now stand, I can display files and directories in the root directory, but nothing at all in any subdirectories.

    +1 from me too, in case it serves anything :)

    If you need help with this task you can also contact me as I have some experience of Windows driver development. Good luck and keep up the good work!

    i don't really want to convert this 1tb to NTFS ... doesnt ext4 do a good job avoiding fragmentation too?

    It seems it recognize a ext4 as ext3, what's more, it can be mounted but it can't be read...
    Is that my mistake?

    Is there any work on this, or has something else replaced it?
