today i was installing ubuntu on an external hard drive and in the initial setup i marked the option "encrypt installation" and the clicked the install button, but i didn't notice that my internal hard drive(which has windows 10 into it) was selected.
When i clicked install a pop up showed up saying that 3 partitions were going to be deleted, so at that moment i noticed i choose the wrong drive, i cancelled the installation, went back, choose the right drive and i continued with the installation (This time i left the encrypt option disabled).
So far, so good with ubuntu, but when i failed to boot from windows i realized that i encrypted the whole drive!
I need the files back, i have no idea what to do next! Please help, i read i needed to do a back up, but i dont even know how to access the drive. Any comments or suggestion will we welcome.
