You can. If you run:

ln -s /host ~/Windows\ Data

And you can access it easily.

What's the meaning of this command?

Thanks!

If you use wubi, the NTFS is accessible from the /host folder, it just makes an easier way to get to it

Where can I find the Host folder inside Ubuntu??

It's a folder in the root of thefile system, if you run the command it will be easier to access

Will this create a shortcut somewhere in Ubuntu?

Yes, and it will appear next to your Pictures and Video folders.....

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.
