Ubuntu – How to read ext4 partitions in Windows?


I have two questions on ext4:

  1. Is there currently a way to mount an ext4 partition in Windows (XP/Vista/7) to get basic read support?
  2. If not, are there any plans to support this someday?

Best Answer

There was a utility called ext2read to browse Ext partitions in Windows (including Ext4 partitions) which may not work anymore as mentioned in the comment below by @heynnema and could corrupt your partitions.

The project isn't updated since 2012
