Well, I wrote a program for doing so, but to not let this look like an ad for my (free) software I will also mention all alternatives I know of:

rfstool (http://p-nand-q.com/download/rfstool/overview.html) is a command line client, all solutions I know of are using this tool.
There is a ReiserFS plugin for Total Commander (TC is no freeware) on http://www.ghisler.com/plugins.htm.

Finally, the rfstool site lists three GUIs for the tooll (http://freehost19.websamba.com/slacker2k2/rfstoolgui/, http://www.wolfsheep.com/map/#RFSGUI and finally my one, http://yareg.akucom.de) to read ReiserFS on Windows with a graphical user interface. To choose one, you might compare the descriptions/screenshots and decide which one suits your needs best.
Hope this helps. :-)

This is exactly what I've been looking for, yareg; so far it's working good. Thanks a lot!

(I get crash a dialog box when I start the software, though, presumably caused by rftools. But nothing is shutdown and reading from reiserfs partitions seem to work good. Anything you know about?)

Erm... no. What exactly is this box saying? Or can you send me a screenshot of it? (my mail address is at the bottom of the YAReG page) Thanks.

First I get a familiar "rfstool has encountered a problem and must be shut down"-message. And then XP allows me to report the problem if I want. There's a log-file created, but for some reason it's empty when I take a look at it now again (under Linux - I'll try to save it later and email it to you).

Afterwards, rfstool gives the following message

Quote:
an exception occured when removing the . and .. nodes from the directory content. This means something has already gone wrong before, probably rfstool has encountered an error. Not much help I can offer on that... just try to work on...
...and the everything seems to work fine.

Well, ok, no need to send me that crashlog, it's about rfstool anyway, so if anybody, Gerson (its author) is interested in it, it won't help me.
As the message says, I cannot do anything about it, and as long as it still works, just carry on using it...

The previous rfstool call is using the "-p" parameter, reading the contents of a directory... the next version of YAReG will show all arguments of that call, just in case the problem is there. Don't know when this will be, though... :-/
I'll try to remember telling you.

Exclamation RFSGUI

I am the author of RFSGUI. Its not as fancy as the others, but it is built with rfstool code in it, so it does not require rfstool to operate. Furthermore, it has partial support of pointers, and can navigate multiple partitions with some effort. I may work on it some in the future, but I'm doing a lot of stuff to learn C# right now, so if anyone wants to play with it, its Win32 C++, non-MFC.

ReiserDriver is a native file system driver for Windows that can read ReiserFS. ReiserFS partitions just show up as additional disks to the operating system, so files can be accessed using any application, without having to copy over files.

Of course I like the tool, since I wrote it.

I just released the public beta, at http://rfsd.sf.net

I look forward to how the native driver works out? Got any x64 build in mind?

I'll definitely look into an x64 build within a few weeks. Unfortunately, I don't have the hardware to test it now. If you're interested, I can try just setting the DDK build environment to 64-bit windows, but I don't have any idea beyond that yet what will be involved in providing 64-bit support.

I'd be willing to test it. One thing I've looked at in x64 programming is that drivers need the newest SDK & have to have all their inline assembler converted to .ASM files & assembled. I need to read up on my assembler before I get that brave. lol

That's really good news, Mark. Thanks a lot for the driver!

However, I've almost entirely gone over to reiser4. Any plans on writing a reiser4 driver as well?
