my desktop is dual boot, but I haven't booted windows since... Jan 2009 ?
I mounted that partition, here is part of the listing:
dr-x------ 1 root root 0 Jan 16 2009 Config.Msi
dr-x------ 1 root root 24576 Jan 16 2009 Program Files
-r-------- 1 root root 2145386496 Jan 16 2009 pagefile.sys
-r-------- 1 root root 2145300480 Jan 16 2009 hiberfil.sys
dr-x------ 1 root root 122880 Jan 16 2009 WINDOWS
