How to transfer files from Windows 7 to Linux Ubuntu?

I'd like to get some files from my Windows partition, but I can't find it.

Do I need an application to do this, or is there a specific place I need to look?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Ubuntu supports NTFS (Windows) file systems by default, and you don't need any special software to view them.

  • If you installed Ubuntu side by side with Windows, then your Windows partition will show up in Computer:/// in Nautilus.
  • It will also show up in your file system under /media/pathtopartition.
