My windows partition got infected with a virus so I can't boot in Windows. I am trying to recover some documents from the windows partition by booting Ubuntu on my dual boot system. I was successful in easily recovering some files from my desktop. However, I can't get the files from my pictures folder. Here's what I see (after blocking the username):
root@ubuntu:~# ls -alth /host/Users/XXXXX/Documents/My* lrwxrwxrwx 2 root root 116 2010-12-06 09:09 /host/Users/XXXXX/Documents/My Videos -> /root/Users/XXXXX/Videos lrwxrwxrwx 2 root root 124 2010-12-06 09:09 /host/Users/XXXXX/Documents/My Pictures -> /root/Users/XXXXX/Pictures lrwxrwxrwx 2 root root 112 2010-12-06 09:09 /host/Users/XXXXX/Documents/My Music -> /root/Users/XXXX/Music root@ubuntu:~# cd /host/Users/XXXXX/Documents/My\ Pictures bash: cd: /host/Users/XXXXX/Documents/My Pictures: No such file or directory root@ubuntu:~# cd /root root@ubuntu:~# ls root@ubuntu:~#
If I try to open it by clicking it in Ubuntu's places window, it displays a window saying
The Link "My Pictures" is Broken. Move it to Trash?
This link cannot be used, because its target "/root/Users/XXXXX/Pictures" doesn't exist.
How can I access my pictures?
I have a wubi installation. Firther, If I look in
root@ubuntu:~# cd /host/Users/XXXXX/Pictures/ root@ubuntu:/host/Users/XXXXX/Pictures# ls -alth total 29K drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28K 2011-08-13 13:58 .. drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2011-05-01 16:07 . -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 504 2011-05-01 16:07 desktop.ini root@ubuntu:/host/Users/XXXXXPictures# cat desktop.ini �� [.ShellClassInfo] LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21779 InfoTip=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-12688 IconResource=%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-113 IconFile=%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll IconIndex=-236
