Are you a dual Operating system user? Have you ever thought that just like you can handle your windows files from linux, it would be good if you can access your linux file from windows? If yes, here is a solution.
First, let us see, why we cannot view the linux files from windows. Linux uses file-systems like ext2, ext3 etc while windows uses NTFS, FAT etc. The problem is windows cannot decode and understand the contents of ext2, ext3 file-systems.
So all that we have to do is install a software that can understand the ext2/ext3 file-systems and make it into a windows understandable format And such softwares are available in plenty for free. One of them is linux-reader.
You can view any of your linux files from windows using this software, though editting is forbidden. The link to the software is here. A screenshot of the software is shown here below :
Linux-editor keeps all data on Linux volume intact and hence will not affect the functioning of Linux on your machine. Feel empowered. You have access to all files on your dual-boot computer regardless of the operating system you are on !!
