UFS Explorer allows you to browse your alternative filesystems and extract files from there. Now it has user-mode read-only support for BSD UFS/UFS2, MacOS HFS/HFS+/HFSX and ReiserFS/Ext2/Ext3 Linux filesystems as well as has FAT (12/16/32) support, that is useful feature with disk images (RAW/VMWare).
Why UFS Explorer?
Because of it gives you really efficient way to access your files, located on your disk partitions that are not accessible normally.
Because of you do not need this really! Alternative OS, like Linux, have at least read-only access to your Windows partitions, so you may transfer files there with no problems.
Why not a driver?
Because of any incorrect action in driver will crash your OS. Read-only access from user-mode is the safest way to do same job with no risks!
