After you installed Ubuntu 9.4 from Windows, the Ubuntu installation is actually stored in a folder called Ubuntu in your windows hard drive.
However, there is a very easy way to access your file in Windows hard drive in Ubuntu.
1. First you need to create a folder to represent the windows hard drive, open the terminal window, and type in following command:
sudo mkdir -p /media/c
(sudo command is needed to use admin priviledges, this command create a directory in /media/c, it would prompt you for the admin password.)
2. use following command to find out partition information on your pc:
sudo fdisk -l
you’ll get output such as:
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x8d4babda
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 13 102400 7 HPFS/NTFS
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2 13 60802 488282112 7 HPFS/NTFS
3. Now you need to mount sda1 or sda2 as /media/c. Use the following command:
sudo mount -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222 /dev/sda1 /media/c
Now you can access your files as usual in Ubuntu.
