    Filename dot db was originally created by Berkeley DB. Some x.db are found on windows, but contain no user data.

    Assuming you really have a user data file (some dbms generated),
    it's along path to get into those from windows.
    1. you need to see "edit-db.pl(1) - Linux man page" which is a Perl program - -
    2. leading you to install something like Cygwin (a Linux Emulator which runs on windows[I use it daily] )
    3. then find the edit-db package and install that
    4. and now try to get into the file(s).
    IMO, yes it can be done, but it has to be VERY IMPORTANT
