Cant find my windows files

Good evening everyone,

I am currently using Manjaro XFCE with i3wm. Dual boot setup with Windows. Both operating systems are on the SSD. I am really happy with it, its woring perfectly fine, I just cant figure out by myself how to fix it.

Problem is that i cant find my stored files on windows (like Latex documents or pdf's.). When i open my file manager, thunar, i can choose between System, PRC_RP (whatever that is), Recover and Boot. In Boot i find an windows folder and windows.old folder, but i cant find the in windows on my desktop saved files. Is it even mounted correctly? Or are they just super well hidden? I typed lsblk in the terminal to see all mounted devices

NAME   MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda      8:0    0 238,5G  0 disk 
├─sda1   8:1    0   100M  0 part /boot/efi
├─sda2   8:2    0    16M  0 part 
├─sda3   8:3    0 103,2G  0 part /run/media/julian/Boot
├─sda4   8:4    0   999M  0 part 
├─sda5   8:5    0    30G  0 part 
├─sda6   8:6    0     1G  0 part 
└─sda7   8:7    0 103,2G  0 part /

Hope you guys can help me out :slight_smile:

  1. In win you must de-activate fast-boot. 4
  2. If you use bitlocker Linux cannot simply access the drive.
