I have installed ubuntu 12.10 in place of windows 7. Now I can't see my personal data. Problem is that i'm getting error "can not mount file" while trying to access hard disk under path (GO-Computer)

Please provide your suggestions.

What do you mean by "hard disk under path (GO-Computer)"? – tuxtu Nov 30 '12 at 10:41

Start by opening Disks and try to mount from there. If that fails:

Open Terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) try sudo blkid and take note of the UUID of your partition.

Then run gksudo gedit /etc/fstab and add a line like the following one:

UUID={your uuid here}   /mnt/Data   ntfs    uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=027,fmask=137   0   0
