      Description

      Current ext2 driver is quite old.
      ReactOS needs new ext2 driver with better support.
      Matt Wu ext2fsd (http://www.ext2fsd.com/) seems a reasonable choice.
      Current version is 0.62:

      Features Ext2Fsd supports:

      • ext2/ext3 volume reading & writing
      • ext3 journal replay when mounting
      • various codepage: utf8, cp936, cp950 …
      • mountpoint automatical assignment
      • large inode size: 128, 256, …
      • large file size bigger than 4G
      • CIFS sharing over network
      • htree directory indexing
      • ext4 extent read-only, no size truncating and expanding support
      • Fast fsck (uninit_bg) and group block checksum support
      • 64k block-size, support compatible to Linux ext4 and e2fsprogs
      • OS: 2k, xp, vista, server 2003/2008, win7

      Features Ext2Fsd doesn’t support:

      • fully ext3 journal support
      • ext4 extent support
      • LVM and Linux raid (md)
      • NT4 is no longer supported.
