I’ll be echoing something I saw on the Linux and Open Souce Blog here: Linux Reader – Get access to Linux files from Windows
Usually it’s the reverse that we attempt to do; i.e., we try to see our NTFS and FAT32 drives from Linux but being able to do the reverse is quite nice as well.
The magical software that’ll allow you to do that is DiskInternals Linux Reader. It’s a small software – 0.7 MB – that can be can be downloaded from http://www.diskinternals.com/about.shtml and once installed, you can, from Windows, see everything. Unfortunately, I couldn’t copy files from my linux partitions to my Windows partitions – that option on would have made this software a little wonder.
