    Hi, i've been trying to get some files from my linux partition onto my windows partition, however none of the tools i have found have worked. Does anybody know of any tools that can do this, and can tell me how to use them?

    What file system is your Linux partition? Ext2/3, Reiser? Other?

    depends entirely on what file system you use.

    ext2 tools exist.

    if you're using reiserfs (like me) you're SOL.

    What distro are you using? SuSE uses Reiser as default, most others use ext2 or ext3.

    Yeah transferring them over the network or putting them on a USB key is probably the best option. Or, if you Windows partition is FAT then just transfer them in Linux, since Linux handles FAT partitions just fine (its NTFS support is not so good though).
