Accesing Ubuntu Home Folders from Windows

Hello All,
My problem today is I cannot get into my Ubuntu home folders, which in the Linux partion is stored under the folder fetchingly called "Home". I have tried double-clicking to open it, but it will not open without an error message. Please tell me how I am supposed to get past the error message and view my home folder. I am an admin, at the one who set the computer up. The purpose of accessing it is that I would like to have some pictures that are on the Ubuntu side.
Thank you for your time.

I don't think you can open the Ubuntu folder on the partition from inside windows explorer. You need to boot into Ubuntu and either email the file or use a USB stick.

That sucks. Kind of defeats the purpose of having them available to the Windows partion. Also if I copy the files, it uses up disk space. Next time a will be creating a data partion.
Any other thoughts?
