  • Are the files still visible in Ubuntu? Can you provide the output of the "mount" command from ubuntu and highlight for us the drive where the files were moved so we can see what file systems are in use?
    Assuming that thefiles are visible in Ubuntu, can you also do an ls -lh in the directory where the files were moved so I can see the file sizes, too?

  • You can try using DEFT Linux on a live CD and see if you can recover any of the files.. there are tools there that are specifically meant for data recovery.

  • I agree with the others that it would help to know what filesystems were used and if possible to hear how the output of la -la through ubuntu in the directory currently shows the files.

    It is possible that the way the the files were written to the windows 7 visible partition may have been set with the hidden or system file attributes set, in which changing your folder view options would make them visible.
