Hello,
I'm a 1 week old ubuntu user and I am facing lots of difficulties understanding how it works. So far I don't get it how system works and whats the mechanism of installation of a program apart from software center.

My main issue here when i installed full version of ubuntu 9.10 64 bit , I asumed it will replace Windows 7 i had in the C drive. When it was installed i lost many files that i kept in in another drives to avoid loosing them. unfortunatly most important files went missing and the files am looking for was not in place.

I learned about testdisk software for data recovery yet i cant install it properly and all the search I'v done gives a technical description solution which I dont understand its least basics and fails when attempting a try.

Please note that am not aware of any of ubuntu's terms. so please help with as simple way as possible
