I'm using http://xubuntu.org/ 12.10 on my memorystick, and i need to delete a folder from my C drive in my computer. The folder is in a simple place: C/WINDOWS/program files/"folder name". How can i delete this folder via terminal or something. That folder is the reason i cant mount the rest of C drive.. Thanks!
If you can mount your drive successfully without errors
Boot from Xubuntu LiveUSB and open a terminal. Then give this command
you will see a list with all the partitions - drives of your PC.
Focus on the partition you want to mount.. We assume is /dev/sda2
and then give this command
Now you have access to this partition and you can delete anything.
Then open nautilus file manager as root and point to this /mnt folder where the partition is mounted
search - find - delete.
