Yes, look for a yaffs explorer or ext2explore

Extract the .ext4 extension from the tar files and then mount it in ext2explore

So I will take the data.ext4.tar.a, data.ext4.tar.b and I will extract them with 7zip and the files I will get I will paste them at the ext2explore?

Just open up the .tar.a (Or whichever) with 7 zip
You can extract the files directly from that
Try it.
