How to read Ubuntu [Ext3/Ext4] partition from windows

The ext3 or third extended filesystem is a journaled file system that is commonly used by the Linux kernel. It is the default file system for many popular Linux distributions.

The ext4 or fourth extended filesystem is a journaling file system for Linux, developed as the successor to ext3.

It was born as a series of backward compatible extensions to remove 64-bit storage limits and add other performance improvements to ext3.However, other Linux kernel developers opposed accepting extensions to ext3 for stability reasons and proposed to fork the source code of ext3, rename it as ext4, and do all the development there, without affecting the current ext3 users

Ext2Read is an explorer like utility to explore ext2/ext3/ext4 files. It now supports LVM2 and EXT4 extents. It can be used to view and copy files and folders. It can recursively copy entire folders. It can also be used to view and copy disk and file

You can download Ext2Read from here


Ext2Fsd is an ext2 file system driver for Windows 2000,  XP, Vista. It’s a free software and everyone can distribute and modify it under GPL2.

Procedure o follow

Important Note:- When creating/formatting the ext4 filesystem, make sure to add “-O ^extent” which means disabling the “extent” feature bit. The following steps will not work if your ext4 filesystem still has “extent” feature enabled. ext2 and ext3 partitions should be fine.

First Download ext2fsd from here

Right-click the downloaded file and click Properties. Set the compatibility mode to “Windows Vista Service Pack 2? and check “Run as administrator”.

Run the ext2fsd installer. During install, we recommend you uncheck the “enable write access” feature to safeguard against losing data in your Linux partitions.

Restart your Windows 7 PC and run the Ext2 Volume Manager from Start Menu.

Important Note:- Use these tools with your own risk if you don’t use them properly it will remove your linux partition data

If you have any other tools to do this you share with me.

How To Put Text Files Directly into the Clipboard in Windows 7

Do you store clips of text in notepad? In Windows, I frequently use notepad to store small amounts of information. However, it can be a hassle to open the file, select the text, and then copy it into the clipboard. This guide will demonstrate how to copy a complete text file into the clipboard just using the right-click context menu.

1. Press Winkey R to open the Run box.

2. Type in Regedit and hit Enter to access Registry editor.

3. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\textfile\shell, right click on Shell key and choose New->Key. Give your new key a name (example: Copy)

4. Double click on (Default) string value on the right pane, change its value data to something like “Copy to clipboard” (This text will appear in context menu) and hit OK to close the window.

5. Now, back to the left pane. Right click on the Copy key (or which one was created in step 3) and choose New->Key. Name your new key: command.

6. Double click on (Default) string (this is command’s value, not Copy’s value) and change the value to: cmd /c (Please change it manually. Don’t copy and paste this value, it will not work). Click on Ok to save.

7. Close Registry editor. It may take effect immediately. If you don’t see Copy to clipboard from the context menu, please restart your system to take effect. From now on, you don’t need to open the file to copy its contents. Copying them from the context menu is MUCH faster! :)
