I have no idea what I'm doing here, at all. I bought a lenovo laptop from a pawn store, and it had Windows 7 with a single locked user account. I'd like to access the current files without resetting the entire system, so I installed Ubuntu to a flash drive and have successfully booted from it (I'm using it now). However, I tried to access the Windows 7 files, and I apparently cannot mount the partition. I've done a lot of searching on this topic around the forums and FAQs and such, but most of what all is said makes no sense to me.
Can anyone explain, in layman's terms, how I can "mount" the Windows 7 "partition" (which I think is what I need to do)?
