Folders and Files created with Ubuntu on an NTFS drive not showing up on widows.. [Solved]

Recently i upgraded my windows PC from 7 to 8 and on the same pc i updated my Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10.

All was going smoothly until one day, while using Ubuntu I transferred some files and folders to a NTFS drive that i use for  common data storage between the 2 OS like my Eclipse Work spaces , Study materials , Songs , Movies, etc...

When i opened up my Windows and looked for those files they weren't there.
I was shocked and thought i might have deleted them my mistake somehow.

I quickly switch OS back to Ubuntu and found those files to be present in that drive.

I cross checked one more time and found out that this certainly was the case, weird right..??

Well not exactly.
I later found out that the files were there on the hard drive it was just that windows wasn't showing it.

Why ?

we will cover that in some time, but first lets first solve the issue that we have in hand.
