    Question Show Hidden Partition

    Well i just installed ubuntu 11.04 using wubi, and i can't see the partition where i installed it. Using GParted i found that its mounted on /host. May be this the cause ? I do have some useful files on this partition and i need to make it visible.

    Open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    nautilus /host
    It will open the Nautilus file manager to that location.

    Now go to Bookmarks > Add bookmark and it will show up in the left panel.

    For future reference, a Wubi install does NOT create a partition; instead, it installs inside an existing partition. In fact, it creates a single large file that behaves like a partition to Ubuntu.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
