    I recently copied files from a reiserfs partition to the ext3 partition I am trying to view in Windows. I have a few files with latin characters (like ñ, è and so), anyway these files were copied via "cp -Rv /mnt/part1 /mnt/part2" and linux shows the files when i do a "ls /mnt/part2" but from windows the files are not displayed in explorer at all!

    I also notice that I can't specify a character set for mounting ext3 (via linux); I am just wondering why I can't view the files on the HDD when they are there, just not reported to explorer from Windows, but visible from Linux!  Notice that from Linux the latin characters show just fine!
