I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 (now 10.10) in a partition, with windows 7 already installed.
From Ubuntu I can access 2 hard disks of Windows 7 ie. C: and E:
I can easily access content from Ubuntu, and also paste files inside C: or E:
The trouble comes when I create directory inside C: or E: from Ubuntu and then try to access it from Windows 7.
First Windows opens up "the folder" but shows nothing inside it, and gives a error (that it cannot open the folder).
Second trouble: I saved some videos from Ubuntu, inside a folder created by Ubuntu in C:. Again Windows 7 did not show contents of this folder. And when I accessed this folder from Ubuntu, "the folder" vanished, and of course the contents vanished.
Please tell me why this is happening? And if and how I can recover that data?
EDIT: As suggested, I made a test folder in C: from Ubuntu, and changed its permissions. Though the permissions didn't seem to change (i.e doing
ls -l showed same permissions as before) I properly shut down while switching from one to another this time, but some times I "resume windows from hibernation". The test folder was accessible, with a image inside also accessible, with no problem.
I am not sure what did the trick. But my updated question is how I can recover that data?.
