    Read ext4 on Windows 7

    How can I read an ext4 partition from within Windows 7? I have installed a driver, and 2 plain explorer software, all of which cannot find any ext4 partitions. Weird, because I am 100% sure that I have one, where I have Ubuntu installed.

    Which program do you guys use?

    DiskInternals Linux Reader is the one I used on Windows 8 for reading the pictures and movies I stored in my ext4 (with extended on) external HDD.

    You can use this program to save a copy of those files to your NTFS/FAT partitions as well.

    No reboot was required and it's ready to start right after installation.

    You can run Windows as a VM under Linux and share your ext4 partitions.

    I use the same thing on Win7.

    Yup, the DiskInternals Linux Reader does work. Time to remove the rest
