If you read up on 'mount' you will find you can mount a Windows partition under Linux, thus you don't have to copy anything anywhere to be able to read it under Linux - if it is on your system you can get it :-) Just mount your Windows partition(s) and you can acess whatever you want from Linux.

cheers
