I wanted to do a dual boot with Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.10.
I followed this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNCSbTyUzoM
When I was on the installing Ubuntu part, the free space was not showing, it was showing as unusable. So I clicked on my C drive on the installation screen and pressed the - button to remove the partition I created and just created the swap space on the C drive and installed ubunto on the C drive choosing to use 50GB. So I installed, rebooted and can no longer run Windows 8, where all my files are accessible.
I'm not just talking movies, tv shows galore that I have not watched. I'm talking about all the music I've collected over 3 years and all my pictures and important documents. I know I should have a backup, but I don't so that's that.
Now, can I do anything to access these files at all on Ubuntu, because I cannot find this 'host' folder containing my Windows 8 user where all my files are.
Thanks for your time, I hope I ain't buggered this up!
