Common directories for windows and linux

Hello.

Yesterday I have installed in my laptop Linux operating system Ubuntu. I still have Windows 7 on computer, I only choose which operating system I want to use when I turn on computer. But the problem is that when I'm using Ubuntu I have only 17 GB space on HD(full is 250 GB). I also cannot access other files such as music or films that are on HD (outside of those 17 GB).
I know that on Ubuntu cannot launch programs that work on Windows, but is there any way that I have a common folder, that can I access both from Windows and Ubuntu? In this folder I would have only music and films and that stuff...

Thank you very much for answers.

Nice day.
