Yes, I'm familiar with Explore2fs-- I used to use it myself when I had 
Windows on this box.

However, I'm not sure it's relevant in this case.

The OP wants to start a DC++ download in Linux and finish it in Windows.

So the question of whether you can look at the uncompleted files or 
check the configuration using yet a third program seems irrelevant to 
me, because the issue is whether DC++ itself can do the following:

1) see the configuration that tells it what downloads are in progress 
and what their status is;

2) append/complete the partially downloaded files.

Which won't be possible from Windows if the originally started downloads 
and the configuration/current status database are on a Linux file system 
(which Windows can not natively read or write to, so DC++ Windows can't 
read or write to them either).

Unless the Linux version is run from a FAT32 fs, or I'm totally wrong.
