Access Linux Files From Windows 10


To Access Linux Files From Windows 10 you should use 3-rd party application like Ext2Read, Ext2explore, Ext2Fsd or Linux Reader. But my favorite is program is Linux Reader by Diskinternals.

Linux Reader is free application and has great features like integration with windows file explorer. This program is a bridge between your Windows 10 and Linux file systems. It supports access to Ext2, Ext3, Ext4, HFS and ReiserFS file systems.

With Linux Reader you can easily mount Ext4 to Windows 10 and read Ext4 partition content.

Also you should know Linux Reader application provides for read-only access and does not allow you to make records in file system partitions. To work with files on ext4 in Windows, you’ll need to save the file from your Linux partition to your Windows file system. with the Save option. You can save directories also.

To install Linux Reader to to official Diskinternals website, and download installer. And install it.
