Explore2fs provides you with a graphical user interface to access Linux hard disk partitions directly from Windows. It comes with support for EXT2 and EXT3 Linux native file systems.
Designed with simplicity in mind, the software allows you to browse and manage Linux native file systems. Its interface is clean, allowing you to view all the partition folders in one pane and the containing files in the other.
Once the hard disk with ExtFS partitions is connected to your PC, you can open the file system image or disk and explore its content. The application displays the file name, size, type, last modification date, the UID, GID and attributes. It provides support for floppy disks, ZIP and jazz disks, as well as USB and CF disks.
You can use Explore2fs to export and import directories (while preserving time stamps), create, rename or delete folders, as well as import archives from the Linux partition, without having to install any other third party application or driver. Simply make the modifications you want and save your new partition. To make it even easy, the program comes with drag and drop support.
A built-in debug tool (can detect any issue that might occur during partition access), ReiserFS detection and Unicode support are other advantages that this application comes with. It also supports the Windows 98 extended partition scheme. However, it does not allow you to browse EXT4 files, the fourth extended file system and the improved successor of EXT3.
Explore2fs is a simple and handy tool for reading and accessing alternative EXT2 and EXT3 file systems, which creates a bridge between your Windows system and installed Linux partitions.
