Ext4 partition won't work on Linux?
 
Here's a weird one:

My win7 and Mint 13 OS installations are on an SSD and working perfectly. I partitioned my HDD to have an NTFS partition for windows, and an EXT4 partition for Linux. I think I made them all "primary" paritions, which maybe is the problem?

Anyway, the NTFS one is readable and writable from windows, but it doesn't show the EXT4 (which I figured.

The problem is that even though both the NTFS and the EXT4 partitions are readable from Linux Mint, I can't write to the EXT4 partition.

The only thing in that partition is a weird "lost and found" folder that I didn't put there.

Any ideas? Should I just reformat it as NTFS since mint seems okay with that? Or reformat in some other way?

Thanks!

EXT4 should be writeable. Check the permissions didn't get messed up. The system likely created the lost and found directory itself for garbage collection.

Okay, I'll check that. Thanks.
