I have Ubuntu 13.10 installed on my internal hard drive and I’m tiring to mount a 2nd internal to recover data off it. It has Win7 Home installed on it. I am having problems mounting it. What is the simple way to do so. I am also looking at restoring the Win7 OS; Am I able to do this from Ubuntu? When I run sudo fdisk -l I get.

Clicking on this 2nd HD icon in nautilus (default gnome file browser), on the left bar (probably below Devices), doesn't work? If you do this, it should mount on /media/something –  GabrielF Jan 5 at 2:45
    
The icon is not there? –  jacob pfeiff Jan 5 at 2:53
    
It should be there. See this image. Your nautilus should look like this and your 2nd HD should look like the "262 GB Volume" in the picture. If it isn't there, run sudo fdisk -l in your terminal and check if you see this hard drive here. –  GabrielF Jan 5 at 2:59
    
if the icon is not there then find that partition in gparted and post it's label.label would be like /dev/sdax. –  Avinash Raj Jan 5 at 3:02
    
It is not showing up in gparted as well. –  jacob pfeiff Jan 5 at 3:10
