If you installed a dual boot machine, you need to mount the windows partition in ubuntu.

You can have a look in ubuntu docs to see in details how to do that: ubuntu help. Basically you need to identify your windows partition and mount it in /etc/fstab

    Or.. even easier.. open Nautilus, click the Windows Drive. Jun 10, 2012 at 2:38

    True, but I think this needs to be done at every new boot before using the windows partition in other software (at least this was the case before and I didn't see the change as I registered mine in fstab).

  • Pysdm and ntfs-config will save you from editing fstab by hand.} Jun 10, 2012 at 6:16
