I created an Image of my Linux Server with Acronis True Image.

Now I tryed to mount the image in my WIndows XP computer but when I try to explore it windows asks if I want to format the disk. I guess windows can't explore Linux LVM format.

Is there a driver or software to explore Linux drives in windows xp?

yes windows can't explore linux partitions, and unfortunately there is no any drivers which allow to do this. All i know is true image has it's own explorer and with it's help may be you can make this.

There is a software that allow ext2&3 filesystems to be viewed under windows. But i don't know whether this will help you out of the problem.

an older implementation (free) : http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/ext2ifs.htm
some commercial product: http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/ext2ifs.htm
the more recent free: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsd

I once tried to read an ext3 disk with one of the free products for the joke - and i remember it consumed a lot of memory...
