4- We are done, wait a while for the drive to be mounted. Open the explorer(My Computer) and you will see the drive you just mounted with Ext2Fsd.

I mounted my backup drive as G. You can see it from the above image. Just to update you more, my Linux drives are formatted as Ext4. So i can confirm that Ext2Fsd can mount Ext4 too.

And that’s it. Enjoy mounting. 🙂
