    Exclamation noobie, stupid, need some ubuntu help!

    basically...i had an XP pc and wanted to dual boot. so i made about 13 gigs of unallocated space in XP to partition with Ubuntu. however, i ended up formatting the C drive, i think. i have a couple files i need to get off of there, and Ubuntu is the only OS installed on my comp, i think
    please help? please?

    shut down immediately and reboot from the live cd, the less you do now will better your chances (although slim) of getting the files back

    what's the difference between an answer and a solution? An answer is what they want to hear, a solution is what they don't want to hear

    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
