comment Forcing grayscale PDF to Black and White?
@SantosaSandy sorry I honestly never use IMDisplay.exe so I don't know whether it's possible nor, if so, how.

Ultimately, this means plugging an ext2 drive into a Windows box when you want to use hard links (for rsnapshot, for example) is fruitless, unless you want to avoid cygwin and make it pass through to a VM, which is another can of worms.

If cygwin underneath uses Windows' mklink I guess it's hopeless: W:\>mklink /H testlink test gives Local NTFS volumes are required to complete the operation. so I guess ext2fsd doesn't support it by overriding this.

@DanielB, IOW ext2fsd would need to support the creation of hard links, but cygwin would also need to detect that and make use of it?

@DanielB I guess I got the sense it might support ext fses based on the fact that it could format them via mke2fs from the e2fsprogs cygwin package. You might be right.

The OP wanted to format in ext2, not FAT32.

comment Parley says “Failed to determine interpreter for scriptfile” for all stock scripts on Mint 17 (with Python 2.7.6)
Tried it from a terminal and it lists its syntax, so apparently yes.
