    Angry Lost data

    Hi All
    "For Every Problem there will be a Solution" (Hoping So)
    I am very new to Linux but know very few commands and regular user of Windows. Since my windows making some troubles in booting from last two months and for my research purpose I require linux to run some software, I decided to install Ubuntu 12.10 (Latest available Version). Yesterday I installed it by replacing Windows where I thought It'll format only C drive like during installation of Windows. Later I understood that was my misunderstanding. Now I was unable to find the drivers like in Windows and unable to see my Data in other drives like D and E. How can I get it back and How can I see drivers like in windows. Please help me in getting my Files back if possible. I am losing my one year Research data. Please help me if you can.

    Thank you

    Welcome to the forums ThulasiS,

    First of all, avoid using that drive to avoid further damage to the data.

    Re: Lost data

    I am assuming that "drivers" = Drives. Yes? In Windows hard disk drives and partitions on those drives are labelled C:, D:, E: and so on. But in Linux drives and partitions are labelled sda1, sda2, sda3, and so on. Sata Drive A = sda. The first partition on the first hard drive = sda1. The second partition on the first hard drive = sda2. And so on. Second hard drive = sdb. Third hard drive = sdc. And so on.

    Open the File Manager (called Nautilus). It is called the Home Folder in the Launcher (panel on the left of the screen). In File Manager there is a panel on the left and a heading called Devices. Those partitions or drives that you call D and E will be listed there. They may be called Volumes or File Systems.

    Regards.

    grahammechanical : I tried looking at your opinion, but didn't work.
    I did try to boot with my windows DVD to check my HDD. but the result was shocking that I saw most of my hard in 1 partition and only 4 gbs is the other partition "both were full"
