Is there a good reliable way to mount ReiserFS partitions in Windows? All I found is YAReG but it doesn't really mount a drive so I can't use my favorite tool for file operations and, more importantly, it won't understand unicode file names.

There's also rfstool, but I have not specifically tried this.

Note the following restriction!:

  • Access is read-only. I do not intend to change that, at least for the time being.

  • Journal data is ignored. These tools show the file structure as it is ON DISK, right now.

There is rfsd which, as I know, is based on rfstool. Simple enough to use and it mounts as a drive so you can use FAR.

The last update is from 2005 and it states that it is unstable. – Albert Jun 19 '10 at 17:26
In fact, probably it does not work anymore on newer versions of Windows. – Renan Feb 21 '12 at 2:13

maybe not the most elegant way, but it works for me:

Cooperative Linux is the first working free and open source method for optimally running Linux on Microsoft Windows natively. More generally, Cooperative Linux (short-named coLinux) is a port of the Linux kernel that allows it to run cooperatively alongside another operating system on a single machine. For instance, it allows one to freely run Linux on Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7.

here's a tutorial: Ext3, ReiserFS & XFS in Windows thanks to coLinux
