Thanks for liking the project. Looking for developers who could maintain it because i am quite busy these days.

Hi all,
   Thank you very much for liking this project. I have not been able to update the project because i have very less spare time for this project these days. I have people sending patches and suggestion but i am not able to apply, test and release them.
   So i was wondering if anyone is interested in maintaining this project. send me an email if you are interested.
Thanks

  1. Man, I just wanted to thank you so much for making this utility.
    I've had this old Linux external hard drive for years. It has thousands and thousands of family pictures and video on it.
    I've tried forever to access the drive and get the wonderful memories off of it.
    Randomly today... Christmas Eve.... I found this program. I installed it.... and to my astonishment it recognized the drive.
    I was so excited I didn't know what to do. I right clicked the drive and saw "save". I clicked that and it is transferring all my precious memories to my computer.

    After the holidays are over, you are going to get a nice donation from me.

    Millions of thanks.

  3. This program is amazing... My installation of Ubuntu crashed and wouldn't let me access it, so I used this program to retrieve two of my physics lab assignments and two calculus assignments from my disk file. It saved me about 48 hours of redoing assignments...

    If I ever get some free time, I might shoot you an email, because this program is so very helpful if you accidentally update to the erroneous grub mentioned in the wiki.

    I don't know what I would have done if I had to redo my synthetic division for all those problems... :)

  6. Hi!

    I tried to get a 7GB file from a ext3 formatted USB stick on Windows 7 Home Premium. Don't know why, but I got trasfered only 128MB of it with this program. 2 Smaller files were transfered ok. Is this a bug or what?

  7. I wish I could be as excited as the rest of the folks that commented, but I cannot seem to get the program to work, even when I "Run as Administrator" and I've rescanned the drives too. I'm dual booting with Vista (32-bit) (on the first partition) and Ubuntu 11.04 (32-bit) on the third partition on my main (or Drive 0) drive. Here's a copy of the log file:
    Error Opening \\.\PhysicalDrive7. Error Code 2

    Scanning \\.\PhysicalDrive0

    Any help would really be appreciated as this tool would be a lifesaver for me.

  10. Hi, I'd like to thank you for ext2explore. I am hoping that I will be able to use it to retrieve my files from Ubuntu 12.04 -which is no longer bootable in my dual OS systems with Windows 7.

    Now I have ext2explore installed and set as "run program as administrator" as instructed here- http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/33387/how-to-browse-your-linux-partition-from-windows/

    But I have gone through every folder one by one and I can't find my files....can you help?

    Thanks much!

  11. It didn't Save the symbolic links for me, so it could be dangerously misleading. Still, it could be handy for emergencies

  12. I want to add one more things about file paths. that there are many cases in which we need to move long path files so we can try Long Path Tool. This really helpful in performing many tasks.
