Seeing linux partitions in windows


Hi,

A while ago, there was a post about being able to read/write to linux partitions in windows. Can anyone tell me the name of that program again. Thanks.

Also can linux read and write to NTFS drives yet. Or is it still read?

Thanks in advance.

ntfs write support is poor.

i've seen ext2explorer that would let you read ext2 from
windows, and i've seen a program that would mount
an ext2 filesystem as a drive letter.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Sounds good - would it do ext3 as well?
