    Here's a copy of the message I sent to Paragon support. Can anybody here help?

    I'm running a triple-boot system with Mac OSX Mountain Lion, Ubuntu Linux Saucy, and Windows 8. Everything works fine except that when I boot into OSX it doesn't recognize the Linux partitions and gives me an error message that says "The disk you inserted was not readable".

    I installed your product Extfs for Mac to solve this problem. The error message goes away and I can see the Linux partitions from OSX. Unfortunately, when I try to boot into Linux, it crashes and reports a file system error. It gives me the option to fix the error, which I take. At that point, Linux works properly until the next time I try to boot OSX, when Linux crashes again.

    I had to uninstall Extfs for Mac to solve this error and make Linux boot properly.

    Is there a way to make your product work correctly without corrupting Linux?

    Thank you.
