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 am dual-booting) 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 it? I tried viewing hidden files but to no avail.
