This appears to do what you want. Also, Windows related questions belong in General.

As noted, Windows (like every modern OS... and, yes, it is "modern" even though it's Not Linux) does support installable file-system (IFS) drivers including EXT2/3 and others.

The folks in Redmond actually did a fairly decent job with their IFS interface. Amazing...

I wish there was an IFS driver for JFS. If I had the know-how to program, I would do it myself but I just don't .
