Alternative to Unlocker


#1
Has any one found an alternative for unlocker that actually works in win 8? I forgot to try compatibility mode to see if that helps but it may be netter to use something more native in this case.

Ok well it looks to me like the problem is something with in Ext2FSD and an EXT partition. I can read and write to the EXT4 HDDs fine. However, I can not delete files from EXT partitions. Any ideas?

I may give it a shot but I found out it is a limitation of EXT3/4 in Ext2FSD so I am doubting a windows native file remover is going to do the job. I guess I am going to have to use a back up EXT browser/solution for deleting unless I drop back to EXT2 and that may be a bit challenging to back up my data at this point in time due to space used vs space free.

thanks for all the responses guys. Although, I am surprised to hear Unlocker is working in Win 8 as I have read multiple reports of it not working right here on these very forums.
