    I've just installed "ExtFS for windows 2.316" on my windows 7 PC so that I can share files with another PC running Linux via an external hard drive. ExtFS works fine : I can read / write files on my drive. The only thing bothering me so far is that, files created on my Ext3 drive using Windows 7 + ExtFS belong to "root:root" once the disk is mounted on my Linux box.
    Is there an hidden setting allowing to specify the default UID:GID of new files ? Using 1000:1000 as these defaults would be just fine, as for me.

    Thanks for your support.
