in reply to Trying Win32 code on Linux

If you read up on 'mount' you will find you can mount a Windows partition under Linux, thus you don't have to copy anything anywhere to be able to read it under Linux - if it is on your system you can get it :-) Just mount your Windows partition(s) and you can acess whatever you want from Linux.

cheers

    This is true for VFAT, but as far as I know, Linux NTFS support is still "experimental" and not ready for prime time, so caution is advised. Mounting NTFS read-only might be relatively safe, but I'm not certain about that.
