    You start by sharing the hard drive as a network folder following this tutorial : Share Files and Folders Over a Network in Windows 10
    Next you head to CentOS forum and ask them how to access a folder on the network using their OS :)

    Hi folks

    @seafree

    If it's formatted in Linux you need to connect the Linux OS via SAMBA so then Windows can access the HDD.

    This seems a relatively simple thing to do -- doesn't really matter what the format of the centos disk is (probably ext4 but could be xfs or whatever).

    If you don't have access to a Linux OS you'll need to boot one up (either via a Virtual Machine or as a "Live distro") and then install SAMBA.

    (settings there are well beyond the scope of this post though).

    Once you've installed SAMBA on the linux OS and set networking you should be able to simply access the HDD with windows file explorer --connect network drive.

    Setting all this up isn't "5 Mins work" though.

    Probably easier to ask a friend who has Linux OS experience to copy the files for you on to a Windows external Disk -- install package ntfs-3g on the linux system to get READ / Write access on NTFS files.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    another solution -- install the WSL system on linux then attach the HDD.
