I'm using a samsung rv520 i3. Windows 7 crashed and fails to load past the initial windows logo screen. I am now using unbuntu 12.10 form a usb

I'm trying to find files i had saved on windows before windows crashed.

my problem is i can't find the files or windows partition anywhere. I'm not really competent using linux systems and using terminals so its not really that surprising.

can any one help?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

On the filemanager under "Devices" you will probably find your windows partions.

Hit f8 try booting into safe mode and disable everything non m$$ by using msconfig, type that into run.

fdisk -l will list all partitions.

No problem, what you might be looking for is your "c:" drive, right? You might want to poke around in "Volumen van 444 GB" (language?? -curious) and look for documents and settings, your windows user name, and look in there depending on your document,download,file location) that is a good start at least....

My windows and ubuntu installation are dutch. But it means "partion of 444gb". if windows was english it should be "444 gb filesystem". – Thomas15v Apr 2 '13 at 6:56
