How can I access unix file system on disk from Windows?

By rhoda01 ·
I have old Sun Solaris Unix data in an unknown format that I need to access from a Windows system. The data is on disk. Right now, Windows simply tells me that the disk is not a recognized file system. Are there drivers available to let me at least see what files are on the disk?

if it ext2-ext3 you can, use this software...

Or another possible way is to download a linux live CD, have a USB drive available... power the system off, pop the Live CD in, plug the USB drive in, power on the system, boot to CD, I would bet that the linux live CD would be able to view the file system... copy over the files to the usb drive... kill the system, plug the usb drive into your windows box, and use the correct program to open the files.

Your best bet would be to boot a Solaris 'Live CD'
