comment Unformat a drive?
No, filenames and directories are stored in the filesystem. Testdisk is also able to recover the filesystem in many cases, so you could try that. You can also explore the filesystem without recovering it and save specific files or directories.

comment Read only mount from desktop
Right. That's common, especially with Windows 8, because it always hibernates by default, leaving the filesystem in a dirty state. It's been answered on this site, but in short, you can use ntfsfix -d /path/to/filesystem. However, you should rather deactivate Fast Boot in Windows and shut down properly. That will remove the cause of the issue. More here: askubuntu.com/questions/145902/…

comment Root User Logging in Without password
I don't understand. If you turn "automatic login" to "off", then you will be asked for password. If you have provided a password for the "root" account, you should remove it and use a regular user instead. The first user you created has all the rights that "root" does, but is protected by password.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 Dual-boot freezes
Might sound like a graphics driver issue. The three of you are using the same machines? You could always try another flavour of Ubuntu that doesn't require anything special from your GPU, like Lubuntu, Xubuntu, etc. If you can provide some details about the computers, it makes it a lot easier.

"Per the error message"? What error message? This is an impossible question. Please edit to provide some details.

Try using another USB stick. You should get to a desktop and not any command lines.

comment Root User Logging in Without password
Can you please provide more details? Do you mean you've given a password for "root" and log in with this user? That's a bad idea. You should look in System Settings > User Accounts and switch "Automatic Login" to off.

In Ubuntu, a filesystem can have a name such as /dev/sda1. That is the first partition on the first disk. However, you also have /dev/sda. That's the whole disk. If you want to make an exact copy of the whole disk, you can use dd to copy /dev/sda to some file.

@AUROKUMAR: Those instructions are extremely old and are no longer required in Ubuntu 14.04LTS. Did you try following those instructions before you connected your device?

comment How to clear the Ubuntu launcher history
Hmm. Interesting. Perhaps you haven't updated the desktop database? Or perhaps the application just uses the same desktop file for some reason. Try running sudo update-desktop-database.

Yes, everything that is related to a user is stored in the users home directory. That's every personal file and every setting for every application. You can easily replace Ubuntu with another version of Ubuntu without having to reconfigure your stuff afterwards. Just keep /home untouched.

Where in the filesystem do you find them?

Better to simply do a database lookup using dpkg -L.

Please edit your question to provide more details. "I got some kinda thing asking for stuff" isn't really a good description.

comment how to completely uninstall everything from ubuntu 14.10
You could make one though, by looking at all dependencies for ubuntu-desktop and purging any package that is not necessary for an Ubuntu Desktop system.
