I have a recently bought a laptop with an SSD of 128GB (46 GB free space) and a HDD of 1TB (350 GB free space). Currently, I have installed windows 8 on the SSD (C drive) and I use the the HDD (D drive) to store my data (images, music, videos, documents etc.). Would it be possible for me to install ubuntu next to windows 8 on the SSD, giving it about 20 GB for system and then make a really small home folder on C and actually just use my files from my D drive (the HDD) and keep my data and would I still be able to access my data from windows 8? Thank you in advance.
