I am forced to re-install ubuntu because upgrading from 14.04 to 16.04 gave me problems.
However, I would like to save my files in my home directory first before proceeding with re-install.
using "Try ubuntu", I do not see my files unlike the suggestions made by many here. I was able to download nautilus, etc but I cannot find home/my_name.
Any suggestions? I am a bit desperate, it's been a long day.
Edit: I was able to access gparted. I found my home directory. Can I just connect a hard drive and copy this directory into that hard drive so I can save my home files? Will that override all my files in my external hard drive?
