reading and writing to Linux partitions from windows
I and trying to convert from windows to linux but there are some major hurdles that I'm having to deal with. One is it is a huge pain to transfer files to and from Windows/Linux. I have a big Partition filled with my music collection and the My Documents folder filled with all my images and documents, etc and I want to be able to read those from Linux. I have the NTFS read installed which works fine for reading, but I've heard that the write NTFS is extreamly dangerous and I can't risk losing my work or my music collection.
So I've figured that I could make my data drives ext2 or ext3 so that linux could read/write just find and maybe I could get Windows to read/write it too? What can I use in windows that could read/write to ext2 or ext3?
How have other people solved this problem when migrating from MS to Linux?
remember also that a FAT32 partition can fascilitate read/write from both Linux and Windows.
I simply use a FAT32 partition to share data between my Linux distributions and Windows.
explore2fs is good for exploring but if you really want to use the partitions normally, it doesn't help. I would need something that could mount the partition in windows so that I could use it normally, for more than just browsing files.
I think FAT32 is depriciated in WinXP, but it should still work. I'll try that.
