    Is there any way i can access a time machine backup disk on windows?

    I've upgraded to Lion and now i can't access any of my files as they were all backed up on my NAS - QNAP are slow with the release of the supported firmware, very annoying as judging by their statement on the forums they have only just started work on it.

    When i try to connect to TM i get a connection failed and when trying through Time Machine it says it's not supported.

    The filesystem is EXT4, any other way i can access the files?

    I found something called MacDrive which claims to allow access from Windows but i need to mount the TimeMachine .. when i access the drive i can only see the network shares, no TM backups.
