Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I am a novice at Ubuntu,and have been unable to find the following information: I am using Ubuntu in the "Try Ubuntu" rather than the installed mode. When I use the file manager function, I don't see my hard drive. In fact I see no devices at all listed. My goal is to use Ubuntu to go into my Windows/System32 folder and modify a file there. How can I see that folder in Ubuntu?

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu paytan! Do you not see something like this in your file manager: i.imgur.com/xWlkxDc.png? If yes, click on those, those are your partitions; they won't show up as "C:" and "D:" drives. If you don't see that, then we'll try to mount them manually. Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and type sudo fdisk -l and ENTER. edit your question and paste the output. Comment back here when you do that. –  Alaa Ali Aug 13 '13 at 22:48
