Usually the Windows partition should show up on the left side of nautilus (the file manager).
If it is not there, assist us by opening the terminal, running:

sudo lshw -c disk,volume; mount; dmesg | fgrep sd

and posting the output here!

I'd just installed Ubuntu, and I'd like to have acces to windows files like Manish.

I post the output:

There are two Windows drives mounted. As /host and /media/SYSTEM. They should be visible in the left bar of the file manager and as the given folders.

Daniel Lanza (danilanzagarcia) said : #5

Thanks Thomas. I enter to host folder. Reffering to the another Windows drive, /media/SYSTEM, what is it? The size is only 300MB.

Can you help with this problem?
