I've been reading ext2 partition from windows for years:


It doesn't mount the file system -- it just lets you copy files off of it
using an application that can read the HD directly.  It's read-only.  It
might be a safer alternative for those concerned with viruses and bugs and
such.  I haven't used it in a long time (I switched over to reiserfs at
some point before ext3 was stable, which explore2fs can't access) and now
that I'm using ext3 one would think I'd need it but for some reason I
haven't had the need to.  I guess I'm just using Windows less and less.

Hey look at this... the explore2fs guy also has something called
"ext2ifs"... never noticed that:


Also read-only, but it mounts the file system. =P
