I don't know. It will have to be able to read a UFS partition. One way around that is to make a FAT32 partition to share files between winblows and FreeBSD. FreeBSD will mount a windows file system ok. You can boot into FreeBSD and copy your files over to the winblows drive. Example
Code:
mount -t msdosfs /dev/ad0s1 /home/<user>/mounting_point
Sorry, I don't mess with winblows too much. You may google for a windows remedy.

Good luck.

ffsdrv

There is a driver for accessing ffs from WindowsXP, but I have never used it, so it would be at your own risk:

http://ffsdrv.sourceforge.net

I noticed a "3.x" in your message, which hopefully is a typo :-) ... because the ffsdrv driver would do no good for you on Windose 3.x.

If you try the ffsdrv project code, let me know if it works, and maybe I'll give it a go ....
