    Red face C drive files not accessible

    Hi everyone,
    I am completely new to linux, I have the following version

    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 11.04"

    Few days back I was able to access all my C: drive documents and files. But now after I logged it into after a month or more I am not able to open any of the files in my c drive.

    I have installed ubuntu, by clicking the iso file.
    Kindly tell me how can I access them back.

    I'm afraid I don't entirely understand.

    Linux has no concept of a C: drive. Are you referring to files that had been created under Windows?

    Are you dual-booting? This means that you have Windows and Linux installed at the same time.

    Sorry I didn't clarify about my system.
    Yes, I am having 2 operating systems.
    By C drive, here I meant I am not able to access, my windows' files and documents.
    Kindly help me out.

    have you mounted the windows partition? do you know how to mount your windows partition? do you have wine installed?

    No, I didn't mount the windows partition. I do not know how to mount the windows partition.
    As I mentioned, I operated ubuntu by ISO file.. I didn't create swap memory.
    I am able to access windows, I do not know when I could not access files from Ubuntu. It all just happened suddenly!

    Did you install Ubuntu using the wubi installer?
    Do you have Ubuntu installed on a separate partition?
    How are you trying to boot Ubuntu, using the windows bootloader? Using the Ubuntu bootloader?

    or when you say you ran it as a .iso do you mean you are running it on a virtual machine?

    ubuntu is installed using wubi installer, its not in a separate partition, its using windows loader to boot.

    How many partition u already had..!! and where did u allocated space for ubuntu..??

    I have 2 partitions.
    As I had used wubi installer, space is automatically allocated to Ubuntu, I guess.
    I didn't make any other partition for it.
