I want to have the following setup:
- Windows on C: partition (ntfs)
- Linux (Ubuntu) on F: partition (ext4)
- All my files on D: partition (ext4)
My problem is: every time I boot Windows Ext2Fsd corrupts the superblocks of my ext4 partitions. The F: partition got event so bad that all superblocks including backups are gone. (Interestingly, I can access the data from Windows on both corrupt partitions).
I installed the latest version of Ext2Fsd which is supposed to fix the bug but apparently it didn't (I repaired the partition, started Windows and then Linux live USB stick -- corrupt again).
How can I get Windows and Linux to play along nicely?
Suddenly Ext2Fsd recognizes both partitions as ext3, which is wrong, so I can't access the data in Windows anymore (this might change with the next reboot).
Other things I tried: I had
D: as ntfs before, but Ubuntu said something like "Windows did not shut down correctly, can only mount in read-only" (and some quick research couldn't fix it). I'm fine with reformatting my Data partition again if it helps though (I still have a backup of the original NTFS partition).
