Is it possible to format an ext3 disk space (on an extended partition) from Windows 7? Any utility available to do that?

I wanted to suggest a ubuntu boot or maybe a GParted based solution.
Turns out, this is already discussed at Superuser (where it is probably more suited).

Yep, GParted did the trick. Thanks. – Arnkrishn Oct 1 '09 at 5:51
