Hi to all,
Last week my Windows Vista decided to stop working. I have gone through many forums and tried different things to restore it, however the Windows files seem to be corrupted and I cant restore anything.
I am trying atm to backup files from the C: and D: partitions by using Ubuntu 10.11 which I am currently running off a USB stick. I have noticed when trying to install Ubuntu that my d: and c: partitions are named /dev/sda2 and /dev/sda3, while the partition with the recovery files for Windows is called /dev/sda1.
The only problem is when I try to access the Windows partitions through the Computer folder in Ubuntu, and none of the partitions show up, which is making it hard for me to copy files off these partitions.
Can anyone suggest what I should do to access these partitions through Ubuntu?
Please take into consideration that I am a complete newbie when it comes to working with Linux.
Any help will be most appreciated, thanks.
