My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

On Ubuntu hosts this is done a shown here: askubuntu.com/questions/88647/… - I believe it is done very similar on Windows but Windows issues are off topic here.

Please do not recommend running Nautilus as root to a beginner. This can turn out to be evil.

In case only the partition table was overwritten it is a matter of seconds to recover it using testdisk. As soon as data were written as well you may only be able to recover untouched parts of your data but not your OSes. See askubuntu.com/questions/286181/…

comment virtualbox guestaddition version from VM client
@Bernard: on attempting to install guest additions this directory will be created to hold the installer and (more important) the uninstaller scripts. If the installation failed for any reason this directory will stay.

comment virtualbox guestaddition version from VM client
The error indicates that the guest additions are not installed. Did you try to load the .iso in the host, then mount it to the guest to start the installer there?

comment I'm trying to run mopidy music server but the port 6600/6680 which it uses is already in use by python
Mopidy is a Python application, so it is of little surprise that your ports were assigned to a Python application. Your issue may be a different one.
