[ubuntu] Windows / Ubuntu shared folder

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I've just installed 11.04 on a friend's machine, dual-booting with Windows 7. Now, he wanted to access his Windows desktop from Ubuntu, so I also created a desktop shortcut leading to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\ or something similar. So far so good. However, on rebooting into Windows, he found his desktop empty of all files and folders. He eventually unearthed them in another desktop folder [sorry not to be more precise... but that's how he explained it]. This has apparently happened more than once. I would guess it has something to do with file permission conflicts b (Hardware)
