I'm new to Ubuntu, so can any of you give me a guide of how I can access my windows 7 files from my Ubuntu 12. I installed it using Wubi. Looked around everywhere but failed.

Can you paste the output of "sudo fdisk -l"? – harisibrahimkv May 5 '12 at 16:18

Thanks. I figured it out, my windows was not partitioned, so after partitioning, everything was fine. Thanks. – userIsAMonkey May 7 '12 at 4:48

In my case i just go to the Home Folder-->> File System-->> host-->> Users

Just open up terminal and write sudo fdisk -l. then try figuring out which partition is your c drive. and then just mount the partition as:

sudo mkdir /storage
sudo mount /dev/sda3 /storage //in case dev3 is your c drive.

Why not enable mount of the windows partition on boot time? There is a utility called ntfs-config which mounts your windows partition on boot time. install it as sudo apt-get install ntfs-config and enable mount at boot as

Well, if you installed Wubi on the partition where are the files you want to access, in should be mounted under /host directory. If not, just launch the Disk Utility, find the wanted partition, and click the mount button. Partition should show up in Nautilus right now.
