I am running Ubuntu Wubi in Windows 7 on my netbook.

I want to share files between the two OS's.

I know how to make a partition in Windows and give it a name like D: but how do I then access it from Ubuntu?

Does Wubi in 7 count as dual boot? – d3vid Mar 1 '11 at 13:16
@d3vid: I think not, I've changed the title. – Flimm Jan 16 '13 at 18:40

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

Here's the source.
