Access Windows Files from Ubuntu Dual Boot

Alright, this is for the people who have a dual-boot with their Windows and Ubuntu machine, commonly done through the program called Wubi.
Wubi is an Ubuntu installer which installs Ubuntu in a safe mode or whatever.
How to Install Ubuntu - Dual Boot Method with Windows OS
Once you install and get going in Ubuntu, a lot of us come to wonder, how do i get to my Windows files? Their on the same hard disc (most of the time, unless you choose to install it on another disc upon installation) so you should be able to access those files, right? Yes indeed. Its very easy in fact.
1. In Ubuntu, click on Places from the Upper right hand drop down menu. Then choose Computer.

2. Now once your in Computer, click on the icon that says ‘Filesystem’ it is equivalent to clicking on your Local Disk (or whatever you have named your main hard drive) on the Windows Operating System.

3. Now that your in your Filesystem find the folder that says ‘host’. This is your Windows hard disk files.

4. Now you are in your Windows files! Cliking on ‘host’ in Ubuntu dual-boot is similar to clicking on your hard drive icon when you are in (My) Computer in Windows.
5. If you wish to get to something like your music, you will have to look for your user file, then click on your name.
So, under ‘host’ click:
Users>[Your User Name]>Music (Note, if you are using Windows XP, you will have to go: Users>[Your User Name]>My Documents>My Music
I hope that helped you guys. This is just a simple trick for people who don’t know this. Thanks for reading!
