Most of the Geek users prefer to have dual boot system with Linux and Windows OS installed on same hard drive. Since Linux requires different file-system type then windows the volume is normally Linux formatted. This Linux Formatted partition cannot be access directly from Windows.
There may be instances when you are working on Windows and need to access Linux drive for some files and switching from windows to Linux is the only way but it could be time consuming. How about if we can directly access Linux Ext2 and Ext3 volumes from Windows, Don’t you think it will be great savior for us? Well then here is freeware application Ext2 Installable File System for Windows (Ext2 IFS for windows).
Ext2 IFS for Windows gives full access (read access and write access) to Linux Ext2 & Ext3 Volumes.

Once you have installed Ext2 IFS for Windows all your Linux Ext2 & Ext3 volumes will appear in your My Computer as Local Drive like your other FAT32 and NTFS drives.
