How to enable Windows 7 XFS file system access.

Hello,

You can use a Crossmeta file system driver that will enable you to share data between Linux and Windows systems. Metacross supports EXT2/EXT3, XFS and Reiserfs in Windows and you can access the data from the Linux partitions on very high-performance.

The system requires that you have Windows 2000 SP3 and above or Windows 2003 or XP Pro (32bit) or Windows 2008 or Vista (32bit) or New Windows 7 (32bit).

You can download Crossmeta from here

I hope this is helpful.

Hi.

There are few simple tricks to access XFS filesystem on Windows 7.

1) Download and install Oracle VirtualBox

2) Install any Linux distribution in VirtualBox

3) Mount the XFS partition in Linux

4) Share it with Windows via Samba

Also you can boot any Linux live distribution, in live environment mount NTFS partition and manualy copy to id data from XFS partition.

1) Open terminal

2) Tye sudo mkdir /mnt/windows && sudo mount /dev/sdx /mnt/windows where sdx is your NTFS partition
