Do you have a Linux partition on your operating system? If so, you probably want direct access from Windows, but you think it is impossible.

Linux Reader is a totally free app for Windows that lets you access a Linux partition as if it were any other Windows compatible disk.

It's to the creator's credit that, as it is not possible to make Windows explorer show Linux partitions, they have created their own version to simulate a full intergration with your system.

It's not often you find such a useful and easy to use app as Linux Reader
