Ok, so I updated from ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10 but (its probably my fault) when the ne version loaded I was left with a 2.1GB, 9.4GB and a 20.0GB.

The 20GB says it's unmountable.
The 2.1GB has all the folders you get after installation but the home folder is empty.
The 9.4GB holds data that was on the last version

and I can see the file system folder in Nautilus which is referencing some location?

Sorry to be a pain but could someone please explain what is gone on

Thanks

Can you post the outputs of these commands from a terminal?

Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

sudo fdisk -l
cat /etc/fstab
df -h

Did you install (or reinstall) Ubuntu (or another distro) three times? That would explain why you have three ext3 partitions with three swap partitions.
