Linux – How to access linux disk from windows 7?

filesystemslinuxwindows 7

I have a computer with Linux installed. And I want to be able to read and write data to its disk from Windows 7. Is there any software or does Windows 7 have any functionality for it built-in?

I've seen some website describing how to, but they are quite old:

3 Ways to Access Your Linux Partitions From Windows
Access Linux Files from Windows with Linux Reader

So I wonder if there is any better way than they ones they have described there.

  • Samba is the "standard" Linux way of getting windows interoperability. Once installed, you can set up shares etc. on the linux machine and then browse them just like any other network share.
