  1. Reading Linux (LibreElec) HDDs in Windows


    I have been trying for months to get my Windows 10 workstations to talk to my LibreElec KODI Box..

    It used to work, but then MS (in their... er.. infinite wisdom) decided to change the SMB format and all network connectivity was lost..

    After months of trying to get them to play nice together (share files), I have decided to simply replace the LibreElec box with a Windows 10 box..

    Of course, THAT wouldn't go smoothly either.. Turns out that the 10 TB hard drives will not open their data to a mere Windows machine.. *Sad

    Is there any way to read a LINUX HD in a windows box without losing all the data???

    Any help would be most appreciated...

    :)
