I have spent days reading everything I came across in the attempt to Access files from my internal hard drive on a Windows 7 Computer that no longer works.
I don't know what the Problem is. I finally got a USB stick with Ubuntu 14.04 on it and that seems to work just fine. I cannot Access my hard drive. It might be there but I don't know. I see a 4.1 GB hard Disk (/dev/sda) in devices from disks. But I just don't know how to Access it.
I somehow managed to get to: root@ubuntu:~# but don't know what to do from there, if anything. Is there any place where a complete Computer idiot can get step by step, easy to follow instructions?
I would really like to Access my hard drive and pull a couple files off it before it gets sent in to the shop. I really don't have much Computer knowledge but would greatly appreciate any help!
