it's possible to use applications such as explore2fs, but they are onyl a last resort, and can easily destroy your data. there is no official way, as you are talking about microsft there...

Something like partion magic or partition it running under windows will show you the partitions and info such as size and what not. Wont allow you to access the data though.

You can use samba to share file systems accross os's.
But if you have both os's on same machine then it is not possible.

You can share file system from linux machine and see it on windows machine.
