I assume you have those files in microsoft, use a md5sum tool (this takes some

to the ntfs, run md5sum on it, reboot into microsoft and run md5sum there.
All the md5sum results should be the same, the more times you do it, the more
reliable will you result be.
I wonder if the developers of ntfs-3g have done that, seems like a great
idea. Considering the magic that this tool claims, some such exhaustic
testing would be called for and would be nice to see some statistics about.
Anyways, I installed ntfs-3g and it was quite painless I must say, looks
to be a nice addition to linux. God help us (and I am an atheist!) if
Microsoft Windows ever gets the ability to read and manipulate linux
files-- I don't want them ever messing with my linux files, with all their
spooky DRM policies, etc.
