  • Don't summarize. Show us actual program output -- either screen shots of GParted or cut-and-pasted text-mode output from parted, fdisk, or gdisk (as appropriate for your disk type). The version of Windows and partitioning scheme (MBR or GPT) are also relevant. – Rod Smith Dec 13 '15 at 22:55

In a "standard" configuration, it would be the /dev/sdc2 partition.

Assuming you are using gparted, there is a drive toggle up to the right, where you can select the third drive (corresponding to E:).
