Reading extended file system partitions in Windows

Ext2 and Ext3 partitions can be read in Windows using the open source driver available at sourceforge. However, windows does not treat files in a case sensitive manner as does linux. So if you have two files "data.txt" and "DATA.txt" on your linux partition, Windows will only be able to show you the contents of "data.txt".
