I want to recover Windows 7 files installed on my C: drive. Ubuntu is installed on my D: drive.
How can I recover files on my Windows installation?

You can use the PhotoRec application from the
testdisk package to do this. It's in Ubuntu archives, so it's easy to install. It'll most likely be able to recover everything for you. However, data recovery is serious business, so please do read the documentation and take your time before you begin. PhotoRec won't cause any damage, but testdisk (another application in the package) can. If possible, you'll probably want to create a backup of your "C:" partition before you begin. It will require that you have some storage with at least as much free space as the size of C: though.
