If that drive is not mounted, df -h will not show it. Could you open gparted, and show us what's in there?

comment Package with bad signature got instlaled on second try: how?
I know that, hence my question (I in fact left out all "hits" from all the other (non-google) repositories). It just occurs to me that this is all very coincidental. Like some google employee noticed the problem within the two minutes I looked on Ask Ubuntu, executed apt-key update and tried installing again.

comment Unable to upgrade to 14.04
@doot777, what kind of files did the zip archive contain? Linux is very different from Windows. Pretty much any file could be the executable, and .exe extensions are not used at all.

comment is it possible that i deleted my files while trying to delete a symbolic link?
rm -r dir will recursively delete the contents of dir. That is to say, it will loop through dir, delete files, see if there are folder, delete files in those, find folders in subfolders, delete files in those etc. I'm not sure of the exact order of things here.

What exact command did you use? Just rm? rm -rf? Or any other flag?
