Full access to Linux Ext2 volumes from your Windows Machine

 




The end of the year comes with this wonderful news I was missing...


If you have a machine where Windows and Linux are installed side by side (like my Notebook), how many times you need a file which is stored on an Ext2 Linux volume? I think this can occour a lot if you work also under Linux. Now with the Ext2 Installable File System for Windows (freeware) you can handle all your Ext2 disks as standard Windows disks (and also you will be able to handle floppy disks which have been formatted with an Ext2 file system).



This tool installs a pure kernel mode file system driver Ext2fs.sys, which actually extends the Windows NT/2000/XP operating system to include the Ext2 file system natively.


This is extremely useful and can save lots of time for your every day work. It's time to install a new piece of software on my notebook...
