    Hi. I installed the free version of ExtFS for Windows on my newly installed Windows 10 to test-drive it. Driver can see my MBR disk and mount the extfs partition on it, but does not see the GPT disk nor the Linux partition on it.

    Is this a limitation of the software (GPT disk) or the free version (only see 1 drive) ?

    I don't know what linux distribution you created your ext partition with, but I saw something recently with centos that caused Paragon HDM15 to flag my partition as unformatted. I go around it by using fsarchiver to save off the system disk, formatting the disk with HDM15 and then bringing the system disk back from the fsarchiver saveset. This might not help you but it might help someone else that pokes around this forum.
