Is there any program that is totally equivalent to fsck for ext2/3/4 partitions and runs in Windows?

I need it to scan & repair my Android phone's sd-ext partition on SD. I also know that Windows only mounts the firts partition on a removable drive. I need the utility to scan the second partition on the SD card, like /dev/mmcblk0p2 on my Linux laptop

I didn't hear about fsck for windows, but you may download any LiveCD image of linux, make the bootable CD or usb flash disk (you may download the Windows version of Live USB creator here)

+1 because I did this in the meantime. Running the live distro on Virtualbox didn't work because VB has some troubles sharing some USB devices, including USB to micro SD adapters –  djechelon Oct 7 '12 at 16:49

Whoa! I didn't remember that ext2fsd includes an fsck wrapper too. I'll try it ASAP. Thanks –  djechelon Oct 7 '12 at 16:51
    
it only seems support so called "fast fsck" which should better be named "journal replay" for transactional ext3/4, seems support nothing for ext2 :-( –  Arioch 'The Dec 22 '12 at 10:12
