I ran the Wubi installer, and now I have both Windows 7 professional and Ubuntu on my laptop. When I run the laptop with Ubuntu, I cannot find any of the files from Windows, nor can I find the Windows partition.

Does the windows partition appear on Nautilus on the left side bar? Try clicking there (it might ask you for your user password to mount the partition) – solarc Jul 1 '12 at 22:15

From the Wubi Guide

How do I access the Windows drives?

The Windows partition where you installed Wubi is available as /host within Ubuntu (Places > Computer > File System > Host) All the other partitions will be available under Places > Removable Media
