Any suggestion to extract hidden volume? [Solved]

Mon Feb 01, 2016 1:53 pm

I'm coming from a Microsoft Windows background and Raspberry Pi Linux (Raspbian) has their partition hidden.
Seems to me, my stuff in my MicroSD card is not showning in Windows.

My question is, is there a better ways to copy the stuff out to Windows without using Linux?
I only know using 'Win32DiskImager' to make an image. Then using 'IsoBuster Pro' (not free) to extract it out.
Is there a better way? (prefer freeware)
But any suggestion is welcome!

It's not hidden, it's just that windows has limited partition table and file system support so linux is the best way.
use linux as an alternate boot option,
or use linux in virtual box
or use linux in cygwin (less good option).

There might be a free or foss tool for windows to do what you want but someday you will need linux so just get it now.

Thats wasnt what i was hoping for...
I already avoid that options like installing an OS in virtual box to do this one time task... please, i was looking for a Windows software to do this task.

well
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsd/ will probably do it
however other ways are
running samba on your RPi and connecting over windows shares
or
running putty http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgta ... nload.html on windows and connecting via that
or
winscp https://winscp.net/eng/download.php which uses putty connections to download via an explorer type window

the last three assume you have them connected via the local network

Use 7zip, extract img0 and img1 then 7zip on img1 again.
