- Subject: Mounting EXT2FS as Windows filesystem
I just did:
dd if=/dev/zero of=test.fs bs=10000 count=10000
to create an EXT2FS.
Question: how do I mount this so that Windows sees it as a regular
My goal is to create something that's both a single file and also a
filesystem. Reason: Mozy backup encrypts files but not filenames. If I
have a single file that's also a filesystem, I can just back that up
and filename encryption is automatic.
I tried doing this w/ ZIP files. Windows Explorer recongizes these as
"folders", but many Windows apps don't.
We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
