Cross-file system file manager


I just installed Puppy Linux to dual-boot with Windows ME. Are there any file managers or other utilities that will show ext2 with Windows or FAT32 with Linux?

Viewing ext3 partitions from Windows: explore2fs
Viewing FATASS32 partitions from Linux: just `mount` and explore it with your file manager of choice.

To view Windows partitions under Linux, you can mount them as part of the filesystem.

I don't know how Puppy handles this, but it may have already mounted your Windows disks under /media. If not, you can set it up to mount automatically by adding a line to the fstab file. This page, and the links from it, should help you: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab

Linux supports most Windows filesystems, including FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS.

There's a whole article and a roundup of tools for using Linux filesystems on Windows at http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/9449
