Can this be done on a (windows) system by a user *without* administrative priviledges?
No, at least not in Windows Vista and later versions. Not a big problem for people managing their own computer, but would hamper users in corporations.
What would work is if the drive would appear to formally just contain a VFAT or NTFS filesystem, with a single file containing the actual new filesystem filling almost all the space, plus a userspace archiver program for getting at the files on Windows. But clumsy, of course.
