Ubuntu – Files disappear on NTFS partition


Strange things are happening: some files randomly disappear.

I use Ubuntu to access files (movies, docs, music) on another partition (ntfs), which is mounted through NTFS Configuration Tool.

First I noticed that some PDFs are missing from my "study" folder, but I thought maybe I deleted them myself. But now two albums are missing from Music folder and I'm sure it's something wrong with Ubuntu. All those files were recently downloaded and modified from Ubuntu and moved to ntfs partition. While on Windows 7 (around two years) I never had this problem before.

So how to prevent this problem? And are there any tools I could use to recover files and check for errors? Thanks.

Try running a file system check in Windows7 on that partition. Hopefully the lost files will magically reappear afterwards.
