Mounting Linux partition on Windows with Explore2fs

I think Explore2fs is a program much simpler than Ext2Fsd.

Although it doesn't have many fanction like Ext2Fsd(in Explere2fs you cannot copy/paste with shortcut-key in the window), I prefer Explore2fs because it's not resident in memory.

Installation is very simple.
Download Explore2fs from the Web site, unzip it and dobleclick explore2fs.exe.
Explore2fs mounts Linux partition automatically, and now you can edit your Linux partition.

Mounting Linux partition on Windows with Ext2Fsd

You may find that you need mount Linux partition on Windows when you use dual boot PC.
I introduce utility "Ext2Fsd", enabling mount a partition on Windows.

First, you need to assign drive letter to Linux partition.

Hmmm I can't... saying, "Healthy but unknown partition".

I tried to command line utility "mount.exe" to assign drive letter.
You can get it here.

In console, execute:

c:\> mount 0 3 h:

Now the drive letter of Linux partition is "H:".

View the drive letter in Ext2 Volume Manager.

Now you can access Linux partition from Explorer. Copy and paste are available as well.

You cannot access to the garbled name directory or file is garbled.
