Same as this question, but for Windows.

I have already unsuccessfully tried to open the raspbian debian wheezy image with 7-Zip and Ext2explore.

Next I'm going to install an Ubuntu Linux on VirtualBox and see if I can mount the raspbian image there. But I would prefer a more lightweight solution, if at all possible.

  • May I ask why would you need to read image? I'd imagine one can mount it from Linux via loop device (assuming you have support for that filesystem). – alexus Apr 23 '15 at 16:30
  • Of course: I'm currently trying to run raspbian with qemu, which requires the modification of a few files inside the image. This can be done from within the running emulation, but I would prefer doing these things with Windows tools. It would also be nice if I could automate these steps eventually. – Reto Höhener Apr 23 '15 at 16:56

  • Yes thank you, but I am already able to run the emulation. That was just the background. – Reto Höhener Apr 23 '15 at 17:09

    You might try something like virtual clone drive, but automation in windows is a joke so your better off using linux in virtualbox, you can use a small bat file to start vbox headless and linux will do all the work then turn itself off from there. – user1133275 Apr 25 '15 at 11:28

The question you're linking now has a comment to a duplicate question to yours which features this answer, i.e. use the free trial of Paragon ExtFS for Windows. Alternatively, this Freeware Linux Reader for Windows worked for me.
