Made with ddrescue.
I'm guessing not.
A possible solution, would be to use VMWare to create a virtual machine on W7. Install your favourite linux OS, then mount the image for it to access, or import as a file then mount.
You could then set up a Samba/CIFS share and access from W7.
If you only need to read from it you can use EXT$ Unpacker, which is free and opensource.
Why not? It's just an image.
You can use FTK IMAGER, download here
- A new feature allows users to mount an image as a drive or physical device.
- FTK Imager 3.0 now provides support for VXFS, exFAT, and Ext4 file systems.
- Safely mount a forensic Image (AFF/DD/RAW/001/E01/S01) as a physical device or logically as a drive letter.
You can install ext2fsd which will install the drivers your Windows machine will need to recognise ext. You an then mount the image with an mounting tool such as Mount Image Pro or FTK Imager.
OSFMount allows you to mount local disk image files in Windows with a drive letter.
Works great for mount an Ext4 Image in windows and the download is just 2MB.
About the others:
Mount Image Pro v6 [https://dailyuploads.net/ewmo7ypfr1m5]
(^- could only get it to run by this version with an Anti Dongle patch)
BUT Mount Image Pro can't mount Ext4 files (it's just good for *.iso, *.dmg, *.vhd and some more forensic images)
FTK Imager 3.4.3 http://ad-exe.s3.amazonaws.com/AccessData_FTK_Imager_3.4.3_x64.exe Well I kinda same story - all kinds of CD-image support but none for Ext4
OSFMount doesn't have drop'n'drag support - also the use of OSFMount.com is not that simple to easy associate it with *.ext4 or *.img files to mount them. (it required addition parameters) So here is a cmd-script OSFMount.cmd

Command line example usage:
Well the next free drive letter is automatically chosen. If you've mounted more than 4 images the script will reset and unmount the others. (Change the line with MaxDrivesCount=4 in the script if you need more or less. )
So far that script is only made and tested with ext4 images. To work with other image types like iso's, vhd you may probably modify the script.
