    Yes you can, you just have to copy them across to your xp partition or drive.

    This program claims it lets you mount an ext 2 partition, so you could mount the linux drive and drag data off it.

    http://www.fs-driver.org/

    Personally I just set up a fat32 partition to act as swap between the different OS systems, but that is a bit of a kludge I admit

    Does drag and drop do the job?

    You can do this from Linux using ntfs3g

    or

    You can do this from xp using ext2ifs

    http://www.fs-driver.org/


    Both work flawlessly though ntfs3g is safer IMO
    Hmmm...

    I disagree, I think it's the best way!
    EDIT: although I prefer NTFS rather than FAT

    Also I used to use fs-driver, but now I use linux-reader, described in this thread.

    I would rather save files to ntfs drive and access them from windows

    Nothing big in this.

    I think there is no need for this much big issue.

    Just copy or cut your Required file as usual and paste it in NTFS drive.

    Now you can acces your file from this drive when you are inside windows.

    Just very simple.
