I had Ubuntu and Windows installed on this 480Gb drive (on my laptop) and decided I'd like to try Linux Mint.
One of the options given in the Linux Mint installation Wizard was to delete Ubuntu 15.04 and install Linux Mint in its place.
During the installation, an error occurred and I had to hard restart my laptop. Turning it back on revealed that something was wrong. Booting up Mint from the same USB again showed that the drive now only had 3 partitions.
- Fat32 - 512Mb - boot
- ext4 - 438.74Gb
- linux-swap - 7.89Gb
Nothing inside the ext4 partition was from my Windows install.
Did the installation really delete my Windows partition (it seems so)? Did I go about installing Mint incorrectly? And how could I go about recovering any data from my Windows partition (I had nothing on the Ubuntu install)?
