please forgive my lack of knowledge but I am slightly confused, I recently installed Ubuntu as lately I have favoured using certain Linux distros much more than using Windows 10, sadly I have found I have had to keep Windows due to certain softwares I need to use on rare occasion and so decided to dual boot my pc
I created a free space partition in Windows and when installing Ubuntu chose to install alongside Windows this told me it was creating two other small partitions and then the installer did its thing and I am assuming used the free space for the Ubuntu install.
My question is, is it normal that when in Ubuntu I can see all of my Windows files ? Secondly are my files created in Ubuntu private ? I don't mind being able to see my Windows files in Ubuntu but I would prefer that my Ubuntu ones are not viewable when using Windows, might seem silly to ask this but the free space partition I created seems to be being used but I can't help but wonder if the two os's are using one partition or two separate ones
Apologys if I've confused anyone this is the best I can ask this.
