I installed Ubuntu 12.10. After the install I can't find the files from windows.

I had 2 local disks D: and C:, windows 7 was installed in C:, but now I can't find the files from D:.

I used Replace Windows with Ubuntu and thought that it will only delete the files in C:.

So Is the problem in me not finding them or did I make a mistake with using this option?

Open Dash and search for Disks. Find your "D" drive and try to mount it.
