Mount an EXT3/4 drive read only, ensuring that filesystem journal is unaltered i.e. the read only mount is really a read-only mount, not just preventing user writes.
 
Code: [Select]
mount -t ext4 -o ro,noload /dev/blockdev /mnt/fiddle

Not to get onto the "Linux vs windows" thing but windows 10 now has a "windows subsystem for Linux" where they've basically mapped most of the Linux kernel operations to the windows kernel and done a bit of interop. You can basically just search the windows store for Linux and install whatever flavour you like. Basically it's a really easy way for a windows user to run most of the tools mentioned in this thread. A lot more convenient than dual booting and a lot more lightweight than VMs.

Why would One mess up Linux with a Windows kernel or any of these “long cuts” for that matter.
Native Vim is most probably one of the most convenient things I’ve ever encountered.
