Native look and feel
By Jack M. Germain
I have been pleased by its speedy performance as well. Since it allows me to use existing Windows file-managing applications, I have not noticed any slow-down in transfer speeds. It is very seamless.
I wanted to offer some advice for those (like me) who still need full access to Linux EXT4 partitions. “Paragon ExtFS for Windows” is the program I use, and it has worked great for me in Windows 7.
As you launch Paragon ExtFS, it will automatically detect existing Ext partitions and mount them in Windows. This is a very clever software and prevents mounting of the Linux swap partitions. You can see the list of detected or mounted Ext partitions from the Paragon ExtFS system tray icon context-menu.

Supported Operating Systems
Supported File Systems
When ExtFS volume is mounted in write mode, you can do everything with files and folders it contains: read, edit, delete, rename, create new.
Mounts supported volumes automatically at startup, so you don’t need to bother about it each time you restart the operating system or power your computer on. However, this feature can be disabled at any moment in the program interface.
Formats, checks integrity, and repairs corrupted ExtFS volumes with minimal effort.
Supports all character sets supported by your operating systems, including those that use non-Roman characters, so you will never face a problem of not getting access to file names on volumes mounted in non-native OS.
Read/write support for LVM (Logical Volume Management)
With Linux File Systems for Windows by Paragon Software, your Linux’s logical volume manager won’t lose any of its functions: it will be able to perform open, close, read and write operations and, in general, operate in a usual way.
Command Line Interface
Get full control over Linux File Systems for Windows by Paragon Software via a command line.
Compatibility with 3rd party software
Since product provides access to Linux volumes globally to the entire operating system, you can use any desktop and encryption applications, including TrueCrypt and its forks* (encrypted file container mode only).
