Directly to the point. I cut and pasted several .jpg files from a memory card to a partition in ubuntu, the partition itself is formatted in NTFS actually. Now the odd things is i created a folder containing those images and i can still open the folder and view the images, before i reboot to update. Then i reboot to my windows 7 ( i dual boot my ubuntu & 7) and when i open the partition the folder is not there, i don't know if that's normal but then i rebooted to enter ubuntu and when i mount the partition, the folder turned to a zip file.
I checked the disk usage and calculating from files and folder that is visible and total disk space consumed, i assume that the data is there but how can i recover them? tried the view hidden files but to no avail.
Can anyone help me in figuring out the situation here? i'm pretty new to linux. any help is greatly appreciated
