editor's review





Portable Ext2Fsd is a small-sized, yet powerful software program that provides users with a simple means of creating Linux native ext2, ext3 and ext4 file systems on your Windows OS.

The upper side of a portable app

This is the portable version of Ext2 Volume Manager, which was formerly known as Ext2Fsd. This means that going through the installation process is not actually necessary, and it is not going to add new items to Windows registry or hard drive without your approval, as installers usually do.

Another important piece of information is that if you place the program files to an external data device, you can easily run Portable Ext2Fsd on any computer you have been granted access to.

Clean interface

The interface you come by encloses a minimal and clean design, as it is only comprised of a menu bar and a pane in which to view all detected partitions. Although it seems accessible to all user types, beginners might encounter a few difficulties, as it requires particular knowledge.

Make new drives or manage the already created ones

It is possible to change the partition type and drive letter with a minimum amount of effort, while you can also bring up properties such as vendor, bus, product, type, serial, capacity, file system and status.

Aside from that, you can flush cache to disk, remove dead letters and generate statistics, as well as enable the program’s launch at Windows startup.


To sum up, Portable Ext2Fsd is an efficient piece of software, which does not put a strain on the system’s performance. The interface is user-friendly, the response time is good and it offers a pretty unique selection of options.
