Default [Q] Recover ext2 files

I wanted to extend my ext2 folder to 4GB so I used ext2explore to copy all the files in it to my PC. Then I used TWRP and extended the partition.

My problem is that the paste action of the program doesn't work.
So maybe I could mount a Linux live disk and such but I guess there 's an easier path?

I copied my previous ext2 partition files to a folder in SD fat32, but where can i find the ext2 partition in android so as to paste there?

Or maybe is there another way around?

well, after trying a bunch of programs to read/write ext2 from windows, Paragon ExtFS for Windows did the mack them all trick!
I was almost sure I have messed up with file permissions after all these and yes I got a "System UIDs Inconsistent" error.
Happily TWRP fixed that, so I am in Android again! I guess...

Thanks for the good vibes and may the force be with us all!
