I was able to open Windows 7 files when I use Ubuntu 12.04. Now when I use 12.10 I am not able to get it working.

When I run the mount command I get this:

/dev/sda5 on / type ext2 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
none on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
none on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
none on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
udev on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=0620)
tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,size=10%,mode=0755)
none on /run/lock type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=5242880)
none on /run/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
none on /run/user type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=104857600,mode=0755)
gvfsd-fuse on /run/user/ankit/gvfs type fuse.gvfsd-fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=ankit)
gvfsd-fuse on /root/.gvfs type fuse.gvfsd-fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev)

I have 2 more partitions on my computer one has a Windows 7 installation and the second has some data.

How I can got them working as they did in 12.04?

To see a drives contents it needs to be mounted

In a terminal enter the commands

    sudo fdisk -l

This tells you what drives the system knows about. If you just want to mount it temporarily see here

If you want the drives to be visible all the time see here
