Solution:1

Linux does not assign drive letters (C:, D:, E:, ...) like Windows. It uses device files in the virtual file system tree.

Your first partition on the first hard disk (which would usually be C: in Windows) is called /dev/sda1 in Linux/Ubuntu. The first HDD is /dev/sda, the second HDD is /dev/sdb and so on, while partitions are numbered starting with 1, so HDD1, partition 1 is called /dev/sda1. You understand the system?

That way you should be able to determine which name your E: partition from Windows has in Ubuntu.

If you don't know how your drives are partitioned, use the GUI program gparted (requires admin password) or the terminal output of lsblk or sudo parted -l (requires admin password) to display that information. It also shows e.g. partition size which will be helpful. Even in your Ubuntu file manager (Nautilus), all partitions should show up in the left bar, together with their name.


Solution:2

To show all mounted 'disks' other than 'C:', which in Linux are called partitions, type:

lsblk | grep /.  

The |(bar) key is not any of 1, I, or L. You should see something like this.

â""â"€sda7   8:7    0   120G  0 part /media/user/label  

Your E: disk will be called something like /media/user/label
