Default Mounting FreeBSD Data on Windows

Hi,

just wanted to know (if you use any windows version and dual boot them with FreeBSD) which tools do you use if you want to mount your FreeBSD FS in windows?
e.g. you mount UFS2 on windows with " FFS File System Driver" or you have a special partition with ext2 you use to share data between your os.

I think you have to have ext2 file system and after that you can see your data with some program like explorerfs

Ext2IFS will allow you to "mount" ext2 filesystems as if they were NTFS or FAT filesystems. Might be cool if you go the "ext2" way.

You can use these to mount UFS/FFS filesystem in windows:

I've used the UFS/FFS things for windows before, good when you need access to files from a WinTell.

For *actual* sharing of data, as in read+write!!!

I use FAT32 partitions on dual-boots and the network via SMB/NFS/SSH for any serious data.


Laptop users advantage ;-)

I use ext2 but i hate the (sometimes) huge amount of lost data if Windows gives me the BSOD...
I'm going to test the sharing on ufs.

I ditched windows in earnest back in October and floated around from *nix Distribution to *nix Distribution tryin every thing from Ubuntu to NetBSD and even Slackware, Until a couople of weeks ago when I settled down into Fedora 8 code named WearWolf then after acouple of wearwolf reinstalls i upgrade the last one ran int some problems with it and decide to preserve My data on /dev/sdb1 and do a fresh installation of Fedora 9 (sulphur).

My partitio tables are as follows

sda1 ext3 /boot

sda2 XFS / (works better than every prior instalation on etx2 or etx3 file systems for rot)

sda3 swap

sda4 extended (will be used to add Cento Os and possibly NetBSD or FreeBSD)

sdb1 /home ext3

Is it possible to boot the BSDS of of an extended partion, and use and mount an EXT3 file system as a home partition?

BSD needs a primary unless you really want to screw around and even then then it's not a sure thing.

Also is never much point is using any thing but freebsds file system for the / but mounting other stuff is fine.


REMEMBER: ext3 is mounted as ext2 on FreeBSD -- that means without journaling support.

I successfully used FFS File System Driver for Windows for a number of times to access my FreeBSD UFS2 partitions, not a single problem. It gave me a BSOD and a restart when I tried to mount the NetBSD partition though, never tried it after, might do it soon to check again.

What about the possibilities of a USB stick drive that is formatted in UFS/FFS? Can Windows see that partition when the USB stick is inserted? Third-Party programs are not useful when your trying to get data to a system that isn't your own.

If you can get away without mounting the data, just use WinSCP to copy it across.
