    I found the following in a review at Amazon referring to PM 10 personal:

    What can PM (personal and pro) do with linux partitions?

    Is ext4 supported?
    If not will that be included as a free update to PM 10?

    PM 10 only supports up to Ext2 and Ext3. As for Ext4, it will probably be first seen with PM 11.

    Is that correct?
    I see no such restriction mentioned in the PM 10 pro user manual.
    Did I miss something?

    Failure to support Linux partitions in an Extended partition would be a serious bug, preventing lots of folkes from using PM.

    Does the same issue exist in the free PM 9.5?

    Could we get an answer here from Paragon to my question?


    Looking at PM 10 personal, I see no such restriction.
    In which case. Paragon needs to get the incorrect comment eliminated at Amazon for their product,

    In PM 9, you can freely modify Ext2/3 partitions (shrink or expand). But in PM 10 Personal, you can only create and delete Ext2/3 partitions. I'm not clear why this was omitted in the initial PM 10, but when SP4 for PM 10 is available, the feature will be re-added. And yes it will be a free update for PM10.

    Same engine across the PM 10 board. So no.
