I installed ext2fsd on Windows 8 under compatibility mode and then moved my folder locations going in under properties.

Now either windows or ext2fsd changed permissions on my files, :$ my understanding was that it wasn't aware of permissions? Yikes!!! Am I going to have to chmod all these folders and their contents on boot every time?

*Note: the ones that are still unchanged I didn't move in windows.
