Mount a Linux ext2 or ext3 filesystem to Windows and access its files

Ext2 Volume Manager is an open source Linux ext2/ext3 file system driver created for Windows systems.

Ext2fsd is much stable for normal works, with writing access enabled. The computer's performance can sometimes become an issue when there are heavy I/O operations.

In the case of heavy I/O writing jobs, it is advisable to create an Ext2 partition as a swap between Windows and Linux and Ext2 Volume Manager will help you do just that.
