Reading an external drive in Windows

  • I probably anticipate the answer to this, but would it be possible to obtain the content of a shared folder from an external hard drive I took from an OMV server? I know they are different file systems, but I researched some tools that didn't quite work for me. The tools were Ext2Fsd and Ext2read.

    I have the content backed up using Robocopy, but I am wondering if it would be possible to doubled check that I have everything.

  • I'm not familiar with the ext tools for windows.


    Your best bet might just be to download an Ubuntu, Mint etc live to a flash drive.. boot it on your computer, and check the storage USB from there. Is it safe to assume you do not have an OMV server you can plug the drive into any longer?
