This is old filesystem used in early Linux systems.
This is "official" Linux filesystem.
Ext3 support the same features as Ext2, but includes also Journaling.
Implements `chattr +c' for the ext2 filesystem.
Software consists of a patch to the linux kernel, and patched
versions of various software (principally e2fsprogs i.e. e2fsck and
Although some people have been relying on it for years,
THIS SOFTWARE IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT, AND IS NOT ,END-USER`-READY.
A collection of DOS programs that allow you to read a Linux ext2 file system
The LTOOLS are under DOS/Windows 3.x/Windows 9x/Windows NT or
non-Linux-UNIX, what the MTOOLS are under Linux. You can access (read,
write, modify) your Linux files when running one of the other operating
systems. The kernel of the LTOOLS is a set of command line programs.
Additionally a JAVA program as a stand alone graphical user interface is
available. Alternatively, you can use your standard web browser as a
graphical user interface. The LTOOLS do not only provide access to Linux
files on your own machine, but also remote access to files on other
EXT2-OS2 is a package that allows OS/2 to seamlessly access Linux ext2
formatted partitions from OS/2 as if they were standard OS/2 drive letters.
The ultimate aim of this package is to be able to use the ext2 file system
as a replacement of FAT or HPFS. For the moment the only lacking feature
to achieve this goal is the support for OS/2 extended attributes.
A user space application which can read and write the second extended
ext2. Supports hard disks and removable media, including zip and floppy.
Uses a windows explorer like interface to show files and details. Supports Drag& Drop, context menus etc.
Written for Windows NT, but has some support for Windows 95. Large disks can
This is a driver to allow BeOS to mount the Linux Ext2 filesystem. The
version that is currently released author consider pretty stable. People
have been using it for a long time, with no bug reports.
Authow now works for Be Inc, so you will not see his ext2 and NTFS filesystem
support updated on the web much more. The drivers will be pulled into
future BeOS releases.
MacOS driver which allows you to mount ext2 filesystems (Linux and
MkLinux) on the Macintosh.
This is a full working Ext2 filesystem driver for FreeMiNT.
It can read and write the actual ext2 version as implemented in Linux
for example. The partition size is not limited and the logical sector
size can be 1024, 2048 or 4096 bytes. The only restriction is that the
physical sector size is smaller or equal to the logical sector size.
The blocksize can be configured if you initialize the partition with
Defragments your ext2 filesystem. Needs updated for glib libraries.
Resizes second extended filesystem.
For use with
LVM Consists of 2 utilites. ext2endable
reorganises an empty ext2 file systems to allow them
to be extended, and ext2end that extends an unmounted
ext2 file system.
If ext2endable has not been run when the file system
was created ext2end will only be able to extend it to
the next multiple of 256MB
The ext2fsprogs package contains essential ext2 filesystem utilities which
consists of e2fsck, mke2fs, debugfs, dumpe2fs, tune2fs, and most of the
other core ext2 filesystem utilities.
EXT2ED is a disk editor for the extended2 filesystem.
It will show you the ext2 filesystem structures in a nice
and intuitive way, letting you easily "travel" between them
and making the necessary modifications.
This allows you to view some Linux fs's, hex block
and inode editing are now supported and you can use it to dump an erased file
to another partition with a little bit of work. Supports ext2, minix,
and xiafs. Includes LaTeX Introduction to the Minix fs. You must patch
sources to compile on 2.2.x and 2.3.x kernels beacuse of missing Xia header
files in kernel.
This is a patch for kernel 2.0.30 that adds undelete capabilities
using the "undeletable" attribute provided by the ext2fs. This patch
include man pages, the undelete daemon and utilities. Check our web page
for the latest and greatest version.
