YAReG - Yet Another R(eiser)FStool GUI

YAReG (written by Andreas Kunz) is a free graphical frontend for rfstool (written by Gerson Kurz). It provides easy and Comfortable read access to your ReiserFS formatted Linux partitions through an user interface familiar from Windows Explorer.


* Browse your ReiserFS partitions on any of your computer's harddisk drives as if they were regular Windows partitions

* Simply drag and drop files or directories from your ReiserFS partitions to the Windows Explorer or any other application (or use the context menu for faster transfer of huge files)

* That's it. Isn't it enough? Ah, one more: It's free to download and use! :-)

README! - Requirements, Notes & Known Problems:

YAReG's usage should be self-explanatory to anybody able to create a ReiserFS partition. However, there are certain things you should know:


* YAReG is a .NET application. This means you need to install the Microsoft .NET framework (free download from Microsoft: version 1.1 / version 2.0) prior to running YAReG if it is not already installed. Yes, I know, this is more than 20 MB to download just for running a tool that is less than 100 kB in size. But the only reason YAReG exists is that I wanted to get familiar with programming C#/.NET applications, so there is no way YAReG would exist as a non-.NET application. Accept it or leave. And consider that more and more applications will require .NET, so you will end up installing it sooner or later, anyway.

* You need to have a fully operational copy of rfstool. Starting with YAReG 1.0, rfstool.exe is included with the YAReG zip archive (which is licensed under the GPL since version 1.0, so it now is allowed to integrate both of them increasingly). If you - for some reason - have no copy of rfstool, you can obtain it freely from Gerson Kurz's homepage.
The rfstool executable needs to be in the same directory as YAReG.exe.
Rfstool itself has some additional requirements, namely:
On Windows 2000 and XP you probably need administrator privileges; rfstool.exe is everything else you need.
On older Windows versions you also might need to have the RAWIO dll's provided with the rfstool package in the same directory.

Important notes:

* For huge amounts of data (more than maybe 10 or 50 megabytes) it is recommended to NOT use the drag&drop functionality, but to use the context menu of selected files/folders instead. While not being as handy this improves the overall performance dramatically, for the reasons described below.

* When you drag and drop files from the YAReG window, they first have to be extracted from the Linux partitions to a temporary directory on a Windows partition to be accessible for the Windows drag-and-drop architecture. This temporary directory (" YAReG-temp")is created at application startup . You can optionally configure where to create this temporary directory by editing the YAReG.exe.config file. If you choose not to do so, the Windows temporary directory is used (set by the TEMP environment variable). If this environment variable does not exist, YAReG uses its own directory to create YAReG-temp. YAReG will overwrite files within YAReG-temp without asking. When closing YAReG, this directory and all of its contents are deleted. If YAReG does not exit regularly, this directory is not erased, but it will be when YAReG is closed regularly at some later point of time. (Please note that this does only happen when YAReG does not use a different temporary directory later.)

* When you start a drag-and-drop action, the files will be copied from the Linux partition to the temp directory instantly (not only when you release the mouse button!). If you selected large or many (e.g. within dragged directories) files this will of course take some time.
