Depends what file system you run on Ubuntu but you can get a driver for Ext2/3 that works great for doing just this from http://www.fs-driver.org/ for a default install it should be all you need.

If you want to just use a 'sharing folder' type deal, you could install Samba on your Ubuntu rig, and then have sharing space. I currently have Ubuntu and Vista sharing files, works fine for what I need.

Hmm.. I'd seen the question as it being on the same PC (dual boot). Samba is a good option although secure FTP works well from Windows, just map it and you can browse through explorer.

OP - Can you clarify if this is dual OS on one box or two systems.

Can you give detailed step by step instructions how to use secure ftp please. Please assume the audience knows nothing about ftp or mapping please.
