If you install ubuntu inside the windows,you cant access the Windows OS disk drives from linux.For Accessing windows disk drives you need to type following commands in terminal window.Go to Applications->Open Terminal window

First you need to create directory where you can attach windows partition using mount command

(for example /media/c for C:):# sudo mkdir -p /media/c

Now find out list of partition (click on System > Administration > Disks ) or use following command:# sudo fdisk -l


Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

/dev/hdb1   *           1        2432    19535008+  86  NTFS

/dev/hdb2            2433        2554      979965   82  Linux swap / Solaris

/dev/hdb3            2555        6202    29302560   83  Linux

As you see /dev/hdb1 is NTFS partition. Now type following command: # sudo mount -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222 /dev/hdb1 /media/c

To unmount Windows NTFS partition type command: # sudo umount /media/c
