I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Windows XP.

I have copies files from Ubuntu to my Drive E: and all went well.

Log into Windows and Drive E: is classed as a Local Drive and appears not to be formatted so I am unable to access any Files. It is still visible to Ubuntu but the folder I copied to file to is now empty, had 20 or so files in or before.

Can anyone offer an explanation?
