NFS HDD mount on Windows XP

Hi,

Unix based,

My harddrive won't boot and I'm looking for a reliable tool
that can mount a hdd on Windows XP and show me the files
stored on a NFS system.

I tried the tool: Ext2IFS but this didn't work.

I found a lot of tools on google to mount nfs share thru a network
but that's not what I'm looking for.

I already tried Knoppix but it also didn't mount the drive Smilie
It couldn't retrieve the right file-system.

I hope anybody can help me out.

Thanks already!

Dennis

Well... what file system was the UNIX machine using?

You can't use a driver for EXT2 or EXT3 if the machine is using Vxfs or UFS or something.

Without knowing what the original filesystem was or even if the disk is still viable, you will be shooting in the dark.

What was the machine type of the failed disk? Was it running Solaris? Linux? AIX?
