Dear Helper, When inserting the ubuntu 12.4 C.D. within Win 7 it automatically recognizes a C: Ubuntu installation (that it informs is to be deleted before a re-instillation can proceed). If it recognizes that it exists, can be recovered easily?
A Windows data recovery program could not find any trace of Linux.
If I have to delete, then as I am a beginner then it is risky to start shrinking the C: drive. Details:
the dual boot option still remains, but an error message" replaces a Linux boot
Fileubuntu/winboot /wubi lbr.mbr Status OXc000000f app. missing or corrupt
The 4 partitions show the following and the free space tables are something else. On the C; drive it was something like 150 GB. That would I suppose where the folder was installed.
