    Hi all,

    If you're using both Windows and Linux operating systems, you are most-likely dual-booting your machine. And you have probably noticed that Linux can read data stored on Windows partitions easily, whereas Windows is blind to Linux.

    You can change that - allow Windows to read from and write to Linux partitions.

    Cheers,

    Only for ext2 systems. Explorer2fs can read ext3 as journaled FS.
