Question can I access a foler in windows 7 while in Ubuntu on the same computer?

I'm running Ubuntu along side of windows 7, and while in ubuntu i would like to open some windows folders that i have projects in.

I'm wondering if i can mount the windows drive, but don't know where to start.

if someone could point me in the right direction on what to read that would be great.

Friend, are you running both the OSes simultaneously? That is to say, have you installed a Guest OS on the top of Windows 7? If yes, then simply download "WinSCP" program and install it. It is very easy to use and you can manage your sessions to connect your Linux OS and transfer files.
