I had Fedora 17 and ext2explore 2.2.71 worked as advertised. Since I installed Fedora 18, it no longer works. I already reinstall the program, but the program can't detect the partition. What alternatives do I have? ext2explore was the most recent program I could find

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

So you made sure, that it your file system is still in a supported (=ext2/ext3/ext4/lvm) partition format? – superuser0 Apr 7 '13 at 13:08
I did, it's ext4 like in Fedora 17. – user1911149 Apr 7 '13 at 17:15
Alright. :) You might want to try other products that claim to be able to mount ext4, like, or – superuser0 Apr 7 '13 at 17:22
Just tried all those without success. – user1911149 Apr 7 '13 at 21:20

Using Disk Internals Linux Reader I can read my files again. It's a bit clunky, but it's enough to copy a file or two sometimes, I don't need more.

The "problem" is that Fedora 18 uses LVM by default, so ext2explore couldn't find the drive.
