I've recently installed the latest Ubuntu 12.10 OS , On my primary hard drive I have Win7 installed and on my secondary hard drive I have Ubuntu 12.10.

I can see my primary hard drive and contents just fine, but the secondary hard drive does not show up.

Is there a simple step by step process that I can follow to locate and mount the drive in question?

You are asking how to see an Ubuntu partition from Windows?? –  Rinzwind Apr 20 '13 at 6:45
No , not from WIN7 - From within UBUNTU I can mount my primary drive that runs the WIN OS and programs. I cannot "see" the secondary hard drive that has the UBUNTU OS installed. In saying that I can view the UBUNTU partition of that drive but nothing else. –  user150734 Apr 20 '13 at 13:07
I believe there is a simple process to use terminal to be able to set up the second drive so it can be mounted and "seen" . –  user150734 Apr 20 '13 at 13:13
