you'll need to create a shared folder (from the settings of win7 in Vbox) give it read/write access

you'll find this folder in your win7
you can then put whatever you want from Ubuntu in this folder, and you'll find it in Win7

you can even set the shared folder to be your ubuntu home folder, that way you have access over your ubuntu files from win7
