    read ability for XFS from XP


    Are there any programs that will allow me read access for an XFS filesystem from WinXP? My Linux HDD is a lot larger then my Windows hdd, so I'll be storing all my data on it. I'll occasionally need to access the data from Windows, so I'd realy like to be able to browse the fs.

    Thank you very much for your help,
    Josh

    I highly doubt it, and I wouldn't ever trust Windows to write to a Linux partition. Best thing to do is create a seperate FAT32 partition that they can both share.

    Yeah, and it's buggy from what I hear. I also saw something to read/write Reiser from Windows, but it's commercialized and I wasn't gonna pay money for it. Like I said, I will not ever trust Windows to read/write a Linux filesystem.
