Reading Ext2/Ext3/Ext4 File System in Windows XP/Vista/7

My gaming pc at home is dual boot with Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7, and most of my media and backup storage are on ext3 file systems. Fat32 is messy when dealing huge files and  ntfs-3g is still buggy. Currently there are several tools to read and write files to an ext3 FS inside Windows 7, but most of them are buggy and frequently crashes. Then I encounter this tool (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2read/), which works perfectly for my system. It reads files from my storage and got this option to save it in your current NTFS storage. The only current downfall is it you can’t store files from your ext3 FS within Windows 7. But still it is the better tool compare to other counterparts.
