not linux (quite) but it is free software

Postby bigbearomaha » Fri Mar 23, 2007 9:28 am

IF anyone is interested, I have found , courtesy of a link in PCLOS forums, a windows tool that allows it to read and write to ext2 and ext3 partitions.

http://www.fs-driver.org/

The way I see it is I can set up a partition for sharing files in,say, ext3 partition, and windows can access it just fine.

Finally, we can make windows accommodate Linux vs Linux having to change to fit windows.

:D

edit - The above makes it seem as though I haven't used it yet, I use it currently and have had no troubles with it at all.

Great thing to have if you have a dual boot system, especially if you download something in Linux and need to use it in a Windows app.

Came in really handy a while back when Linux wasn't writing to NTFS partitions, but I still use it once in a while.
