While there exists drivers for the Ext-family partitions and others, they might not be very stable. Many years ago I had the same requirement of accessing files inside partitions not supported by Windows.

What I did was use VirtualBox to install a light-weight Linux distro and gave it raw access to the disk! It worked perfectly and I was able to transfer files via shared folders :)

Refer to the manual to know how to create disk images which point towards your physical disc for raw access. Use it in Read-only mode if you are concerned about data-corruption.
