Windows employs two major file systems, NTFS or FAT32, while EXT is the de factor file system for Linux. When an operating system is changed from Linux to Windows after reinstallation, the data disk remains in its original format.

This document describes how to read a data disk when the operating system has been reinstalled from Linux to Windows.
