    Question file permission for user accounts Win7 dualboot Ubuntu

    This computer is set up as dual boot Ubuntu / Windows 7.

    I have accounts for my sons set up in Windows 7, and also in Ubuntu (11.04).

    How can I give them permission to access their (and only their own) user area in windows ("/User/jasper/Documents/..." etc)?

    Thanks!

    Hi, here is a guide for windows file permissions.

    Ownership and permissions of vfat / ntfs are set at the time of mounting. This is often a source of confusion.
