Mount ext3fs in Windows

I am using WinXP and I have a partition in ext3 format. How can I read the content in this partition just as access a ordinary partition?

Is there any tools or drivers?

Many thanks!

There is a driver and an explorer tool. Generally installing the driver, then restarting will make it appear as a standard drive letter. Be careful with subtle differences such as permissions, case sensitivity and character support.

I have used FS Driver in the past and found that it lead to data corruption issues on the ext3 partition. –  Mark Jul 12 '10 at 10:43
