    Big Fish, Little pond

    Hey all,
    Long story short, my computer got taken over by spyware and i used ubuntu from a disk to try and clean it, but instead I just installed ubuntu. When I went to instaall it, I didn't touch the partitioning stuff for my hard drive. Now I cant find my old hard drive or files anywhere. Is it possible I gave ubuntu 100% of my hard drive, thus wiping out everything else? (old files and virus(s))

    My old hd isnt listed under places. And the **** usage anaylzer; "Total filesystem capacity. 52/7 GB (used: 2.1 GB available: 50.6 GB)
