Access NTFS Files from Other Operating Systems

Read files on an NTFS partition from a non-NTFS operating system with these free tools.

The folks at Sysinternals have created a series of utilities that allow us to access files and program in NTFS partitions from non-NTFS operating systems. Two of them, NTFSDOS and NTFSWIN98, are free to download from http://www.sysinternals.com. NTFSDOS is intended for use under DOS, Windows 3.1, and Windows 95, and NTFSWIN98 is used for Windows 98 and Me. To access files on an NTFS volume, you’ll need a user account and password to access any secured NTFS partitions, but you won’t have to boot up the entire NT/2000 or XP operating system to do it.
