I can't find my D: drive after installing Ubuntu 12.10 from ISO disc. Is my D: drive formatted too?

As I understand it will just format the C: drive in an installation of Ubuntu. Are there any way to solve this? Can I find my drive, or is it lost?

How did you installed? – Uri Herrera Oct 29 '12 at 15:56
Please edit the question and add more details. Did you install inside Windows using WUBI? Did you do a side by side Windows install? Did you choose to remove Windows and use the whole disk for Ubuntu? – user68186 Oct 29 '12 at 15:57

Check the drive in disk utility - it might be using a filesystem foreign to Linux, and from there you can check if it has been formatted or not. Though it is likely that it has not.

Also check out gparted:

sudo apt-get install gparted
