    Accessimg a Linux Partition from Windows


    Hi

    Can cygwin be used to access linux partitions from windows? Could someone give me any tips on how this works

    My linux partitions are /dev/hdax.

    I looked in the docs for mounting filesystems however they weren't that clear.


    If cygwin doesn't work, are their any other free solutions.

    Thanks

    You can use explore2fs to access EXT2 and 3 filesystems from Windows.
    200mhz Pentium 1 with MMX, 128mb RAM, 10gb Seagate HDD. Beastly.
