Can't see or access Mint USB flash files even with Ex2fsd on PC
On my Windows side, via Ext2fsd as recommended by Pendrivelinux, I'm trying to access my Linux Mint 9 USB flash drive's new folders of documents and files I've created, which I assume are in persistence, but my flash's folder only reveals casper and isolinux and preseed and other basic Mint folders. What am I doing wrong?
Also, I am psyched up to use GParted on the flash drive to split its one partition into two which I'll format into FAT 32 so that both PC and Linux can read and write any files in there as recommended by some, but can I do this on a drive that already has files on it or do I have to find a way to back up everything and do a clean install all over again? I'm a non-techie and have gotten this far and gutsy thanks to user help from you all!
