I have dual booted my system with Ubuntu and Windows 8. When I was working in Ubuntu, I saved some files onto the Windows data partition. Well it normally exists. But I booted into windows and then back into Ubuntu and the files are gone. What problem is this? Can I find my files back?
Using the Command Prompt you can use the copy command and attempt to copy the files elsewhere. More information about the copy command is available here. If copying the files to another place on your Windows partition doesn't work, try copying them to your Ubuntu partition.
If you mean't the terminal in Ubuntu you can visit this site for more information.
