    Ext 4 driver for windows

    My friend wish to view the linux partition in windows . I could find ext 2 driver for windows in the internet . But he is planning to move to karmic . And I couldn't find any ext 4 drivers for windows in the net . Is there any ext4 drivers for windows available ? Thanks


    Is this question in the right place ? Should I ask in the main support categories ?

    I know ext3 was backwards compatible to ext2 so windows ext2 drivers would work. I am not familiar with ext4s compatability with ext2.

    I only know that I had trouble with the ext2driver at my ext4 partition so I would like a new driver if some one have one.

    I installed the afore mention driver for EXT2 and I'm unable to see my Jaunty partition (EXT4) from windows Vista.

    So, I hope You could find a solution and share it with us.

    Personally I wouldn't want windows accessing my linux partition thank you very much. It's a nice little security barrier keeping them seperate! My simple rule is Don't Give Windows Access To Anything Important.

    If you have to share something create a separate NTFS partition.
