I have a situation where I need to read quite a bit of information from a ReiserFS disk under Windows XP, but so far I have only been able to find software based on rfstool
This does allow me to see the contents of the disk, but unfortunately it doesn't seem like I can "mount" the ReiserFS partition through any of these tools. If I want to access the data from a Windows application, I need to first copy all of the data to the local drive. Given time and space constraints, I would really
like to avoid this.
My alternative so far has been to share the ReiserFS drive out over SMB on one of my Linux machines, and then mount that in Windows. This works, but is obviously a bit slower than I would like.
Does anyone know of a way to make ReiserFS partitions viewable from within Windows applications? Or am I doomed to go about this in a roundabout way? It wouldn't be the end of the world, but before I begin the process I would like to know if there is a better way.
