I have 1 SSD and 2 HDDs - each has a capacity of 1 TB. Windows 10 is installed on the SSD while Ubuntu 18.04 is on one of the HDDs.
I need to be able to access the HDD from Windows, but I currently can't because its file system is EXT4, obviously.
I need to be able to access the HDD from Windows for a number of reasons:
- I want to install some of the storage-eating software for Windows on that HDD, as I don't intend to use Ubuntu on daily basis anyway.
- I plan to record some videos on Ubuntu, hence I need to access the video files from Windows in order to edit them in a video editor program.
What I had been trying so far to do, unsuccessfully, are the following:
- Using Ext2Fsd - it successfully granted me access to the HDD, but also broke Ubuntu's loading, and maybe even the whole Ubuntu partition. (though I didn't it, because whenever I came across that screen - I couldn't type anything to the command-line interface)
- Tried to reinstall Ubuntu, but this time to first set via the installer to format to FAT32 - it refused to. (thought of this idea because I read online that Ubuntu can read FAT32)
So now I'm lost.
What solution can I have? Thanks!
