Access your Linux Partition (Ext2, Ext3 and Ext4) from Windows in a Dual Boot

If you have a dual-boot system with Windows and Linux, you probably know that Windows and Linux both use different file systems. Windows uses FAT32 and NTFS file systems where as Linux uses ext2, ext3 and ext4 file systems.

You can access Windows partitions from Linux but on the other hand Windows doesn't allow access to Linux partitions.



Many times we might need to access files stored in Linux partitions and we realize that we can't access them from Windows. In this situation we have to reboot our system in Linux to access those files.

Would not it be better if we could access Linux partitions from Windows? Indeed, it would. That's why here I'm sharing FREE tool which allow to access Linux partitions from Windows:
