Get Access to Linux Files From Windows

Accessing Linux partition (Ext2/Ext3 file system) from Windows is not possible without special software. If you have installed both Windows and Linux as a dual boot on your computer, there may be many situations that you have need files stored on your Linux installation.

Previously we mentioned about a free tool called Paragon ExtBrowser, which lets you read, write, modify, create, and delete files and folders under Windows. Here is another freeware tool called DiskInternals Linux Reader that allows you to browse Ext2/Ext3 Linux file systems from Windows and extract files from there.


DiskInternals Linux Reader provides for read-only access and does not allow you to make records in Ext2/Ext3 file system partitions. This guarantees that the interference in an alterative file system will not affect the work of Linux later.

Apart from this, it is necessary to note, that it gives you an opportunity to use common Windows Explorer for extracting data. A preview option for pictures is one more pleasant point, which is worth mentioning.

While saving, it ignores file security policies. It means that it is possible to access absolutely any file on a Linux disk from Windows. The program can create and open images of Ext2/Ext3 disks.
