    Windows 10 TO GO handles LINUX (EXT3/4) File system


    Hi there

    I'm sure I haven't added any extra software - but Windows 10 TO GO version seems to handle READ and WRITE to a LINUX EXT3/4 File system. I know Linux can handle Windows file systems but this is the first time where I've seen WINDOWS handling a LINUX file system Natively. I certainly haven't added any extra software on the Linux to Go system.

    (Windows 10 Enterprise to Go is my HOST machine).

    I can access all my files on this disk which is a /HOME on a Linux system.

    The Windows to Go is booted up from an external SSD via a USB==>SATA connector.

    N900 Internal Memory Corrupted

    No, download the application "TestDisk" and try to recover the MMC.

    The MMC should be formatted at "ext3" file system - with journal and everything - not Windows FAT or Symbian, but full journalled file system like hfs+ of MacOS. You will then need a Laptop with e.g. Ubuntu Linux to read the card when inserting this on your
    laptop.



    If the MyDocs / /media/mmc1 - that fails, you have to recover using the boot menu - to receover, the files must be unmounted. Your loose your Memory Card (up to 32GB), can be fixed while the rest of the phone is running. Search the net for "chkdsk" and "ext3"
    (chkdsk.ext3).

    The "ext3" file system is an excellent choice. It is robust, fast and reliable file system. TestDisk will show that the "rootfs: is FAT - same as Windows.

    Dual boot SSD, Windows 10, kali linux 3

    Could you try booting into Windows 10

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Disk Management

    Right click the partition you created for Kali

    Click Delete

    Leave it as unallocated

    Boot from the Kali install media then try select it again.

    You can also download Easeus and format the partition in advance from within Windows using the EXT3 file system:

    Now that really is a nice addition to Windows, IMO. And it's about time.

    It could be very handy.
    I often forget to copy files from my Linux partitions over to my Windows ones.

    Strange that it hasn't been mentioned as a W10 feature. *Confused

    Hi there

    I only noticed it by accident -- I was running a Windows to Go system from an external USB on a laptop which had a Linux system on its internal SSD (OPENSUSE 13.2 where I used the older EXT3/4 file system not the new(er) BTRF system - you can select at install time),

    On Computer properties I noticed that I had a C and an F drive -- and I hadn't plugged in any other device like USB stick. So the Windows to Go was reading my internal Linux disk on the laptop !!.

    I certainly can't remember installing any special programs on the windows to go system.

    Cheers

    You use the W10 Enterprise version, don't you?

    Maybe it is a feature that is only in the W10 Enterprise version.
    It would make sense to for the W10 Enterprise version have it. *Nerd

    Yeah, you'll only get the official Windows To Go utility in the Enterprise version and it will only let you use an Enterprise ISO to build the Windows To Go drive.

    Interesting that it showed those other native drives. Normally it hides the native Windows drives on the host PC. They don't get drive letters assigned "by design". I guess that's so you don't accidentally mess up the OS on the host PC. It just means an extra step or two if your trying to recover files etc. I think It's the same deal if you plug the Windows To Go thumb drive in without booting from it. It won't get a drive letter and doesn't show up in explorer.

    @jimbo45
    Have you checked what Disk Management says?
    Can you create EXT partitions?
