Ubuntu: All my harddisk partitions have disappeared. I was using Windows 8.1 and tried to install Ubuntu



Question:

All my hard-disk partitions have disappeared. I was using Windows 8.1 and tried to install Ubuntu. How can I recover my data? I tried to use sudo test disk, but terminal says command not found and unable to find package. Please help me resolving this problem. I am running Ubuntu live from the USB stick now, not from the harddisk.


Solution:1

That you are asking suggests you didn't make a backup. Next time make a backup. To the degree there is any chance your data survives on your hard disk, it is worth actually looking for the partitions, if you haven't already. It is possible all you have is a GRUB issue. To look for your partitions, from your ubuntu on thumbdrive, open "disk utility" and use it to look at the hard drive and see how many partitions there are, and what format they are in. If your windows partitions, exist they won't be in EXT4. That's Ubuntu.

I'm truly sorry if you feel Ubuntu deleted your windows partitions, but I know from experience you were given choices ("side-by-side" or "use entire drive"). You have to make a backup first, and you have to make the correct choices.
