How To Browse Your Linux Partition from Windows


Ever need to grab a file or two from your ext4 partition? Maybe you've wanted to backup a few important files while you were in Windows. Here's how to browse your Linux partition from Windows using a tool called Ext2explore.
Most Linux distributions nowadays use the ext4 partition by default, and while there are some tools that can read the older ext2 and ext3 partitions, Ext2explore (also known as Ext2Read) is the only one that we've seen that is able to read all three. In the spirit of Linux, it's also open source.
