    hello

    i'm using 'ext2 ifs drive' (http://www.fs-driver.org/) to mount my linux folders under windows for backup purpose

    but

    since i reinstalled returnil i have a blue screen each time returnil try to mount its virtual partition
    the message I receive is : ifsmount.sys error

    there's a conflict between returnil driver and the ifs driver

    anyone knows a trick to be able to mount returnil partition while using 'ext2 ifs' ?

    thanks


    running winxp sp3

    Hello anthon and welcome :)

    Please take me through what happened and when it happened. Be as detailed as possible and post the exact text of the BSOD.

    Thanks

    Hello Coldmoon
    thanks for the fast reply

    I'm using a driver to mount ext2 file system on winxp

    It's name is 'Ext2 IFS'

    It can automatically mount ext2/ext3 file systems and you can find them in your system like any other drive

    So I was installing Returnil personal , at the end of the installation process, returnil create a virtual file system

    when this file is created Returnil ask if I want to mount it
    at this moment I had a blue screen telling me my ext2 application just crashed :
    a blue screen with the usual microsoft message and an " ifsmount.sys error" i can't remember the exact message

    ifsmount.sys is one the driver used by my 'Ext2 IFS" application to mount linux partitions

    I guess this Ext2 IFS application tried to mount the freshly new created 'returnil virtual file system' and there was a conflict between the 2 applications which gave me a BSOD.

    So I fixed my problem :
    + uninstalling this "Ext2 IFS" application
    + then a reboot
    + mounted the virtual file system in Returnil and checked the automount tab
    + installation of Ext2 IFS application

    at the next reboot :
    + no BSOD
    + ext2 file system mounted,
    + returnil file system mounted

    My problem is solved but I think I've found a little problem at the end of the installation process between Returnil 'virtual auto mount file system process' and others applications which also auto mount foreign file systems.


    thanks

    Sorry for the delay in my reply.

    I've installed the 2.0.1 beta version with no problem at all, rebooted, all is fine.
    Great update !

    But I guess I must wait for the final release before seeing a free version popping ?
    I only found the premium release of this beta.



    thanks for that very interesting application you have developed
