While using Linux distros such as Ubuntu, Fedora you can easily access Windows NTFS file system. But this is not possible when you are working with Windows. You cannot even view the Linux Ext3/Ext4 file system in Windows. To solve this problem I recently came across a tool called Linux Reader which was very helpful in accessing Linux files in Windows. This tool works perfectly as you can copy the files from the Ext3/Ext4 file system to your Windows NTFS file System.
Using Linux Reader
Download and install Linux Reader from http://www.diskinternals.com/linux-reader/ which is about 19 MB in size.
Open the installed Linux reader. It scans and displays your partitions including the Linux Ext3/Ext4 one.
The partition which is indicated by “/” is our Linux root partition. It displays every Linux partition with the path it is
mounted. My other Linux Partition is displayed as “/rajamalw/media/xxxx” which is the path it is mounted.
It has a inbuilt image viewer so that you can use it to view images without using any additional tools.
Copying Files to Windows
To copy or save a file to Windows partition right click on the item and select save. It will guide you through a wizard to complete the process.
You can completely backup a Linux partition in Windows. Right click on the partition and select Create Image. It would
take some time according to the partition size.
This would be a all in one tool for all your needs. Hope you enjoyed this.
