Reading a Linux Disk on Windows Server 2003

Post by JEC » Sat, 04 Mar 2006 07:59:28


I have a client who is running RedHat Linux 8 and we are migrating them to
Small Business Server 2003. For purposes of data copy I would love to just
remove the hard disks from their linux server, install them temporarily in
my Windows Server and copy the data locally. Does anyone know if this is
possible? Maybe via some third party utility?

Thanks!

Yes that should be possible.

Please see:

An alternative, is to boot from knoppix and copy the files to the NTFS file
system (provided that knoppix has write support to NTFS). Contact Knoppix on
this :)
