I'll try your solution. Have all the data backed up.

If I format the sdb4 partition to ext4 and install Ubuntu on this partition, will I be able to access its data in Windows ?

Is it possible to have a second extended partition ?

sdb1 is the extended partition, in which sdb5 is the recovery partition.

I did refer to this question before posting my own. As I specified earlier, I do not wish to delete the recovery partition (as suggested in the marked answer). So my question is not really similar to that one. The second answer there suggests formatting the other partition to ext4. This is why I asked another question because I'm not sure whether I will be able to access the data on both Windows and Ubuntu then.
