About ext3Viewer

The main goal of the ext3Viewer project is to give the user the possibility to explore the ext3 filesystem at a low-level.

The ext3 filesystem uses metadata to organize files and to preserve its integrity. This metadata is not accessible to the normal user.

ext3Viewer has been designed for computing science students who already know ext3. It enables them to access all the opaques structures of their partition, so they can have a better understanding of the physical storage of the data.


This project has moved to github.

The latest release is ext3Viewer 1.0.2. You can download it here.
