DO NOT TRY TO WRITE TO YOUR LINUX PARTITIONS FROM WINDOWS, EVEN USING EXPLORE2FS! It is an almost sure-fire way to mess things up bigtime. Explore2fs is pretty good for viewing your Linux partitions and copying files from them, but nothing more, at this time. I do not know if the project is still being developed... I have not seen much going on recently.
