Accessing ReiserFS from Windows XP


Is there any utility to access ReiserFS from Windows XP?

Thank you.

Is there any way to "mount" the reiserFS partitions in Windows? I want to share a common partition between Windows & Linux, and if possible it must be ReiserFS (though EXT3 could work as well, just as long as it's not FAT / FAT32 / NTFS), and want to be able to use software from as is if it's a normal drive (thus I want to mount in on /data while in linux, and access it as a normal drive like f: when I'm in Windows)

I've already tried both of these....
For the fist one I need to install a seperate file mananer, Total Commander, which is not what I want todo
The second one doesn't work with ReiserFS partitions.
There's a nice little app for EXT2 & EXT3 partitions, called IFS Drives, which could mount any Linux partition (well, EXT2 & EXT3) as local windows drives, like say E: or F: or whatever. The beauty about this is that I could tell thunderbird that the mail folder is located in e:\email - and just access it in Linux via /email

BUT, now I want to use ReiserFS and not EXT3

Use tool. named "UFS Explorer" (ask google).
Yes, it is commercial, but has 'limited edition' that is very cheap.

This is small app that support ReiserFS and also ext2/ext3 etc.

I'm using this tool near 6 months and very happy.

Also I want to warn you about IFS drivers installation: sometimes you will get internal driver errors (on high-density disk operations) and will BSoD...

The Thunderbird or Firefox trick won't work!
For some reason (line end?) the format of files the profile folders are different on Windows and Linux. The only somewhat portable thing is use an IMAP account.
AFAIK there's no ReiserFS IFS (= the driver that you are looking for) I wish there was too.
However you can use EXT3 and will work fine, and it's performant enough on Windows, and it doesn't care about fragmentation like NTFS.
I used it for years the same partition accross chrashed Windows and never broke.
The only thing is when you really fill it up until the last MB it may hang in Windows and you need a FSCK to repair some inodes; however I don't recall to have lost anything.
Any news since?

Cheers!
