    The 64gbfilesystem would be the host PC for whoever took those screenshots, yours would differ but would be in the same position in the list as shown on the screenshot. Where the screenshot shows 'system rescue...' that's the version of Ubuntu the person who posted the screenshots is using.

    so you are trying ubuntu and have NOTinstalled
    then you should see the windows harddrive with various directories
    sounds like the drive has been wiped in some way

    under the HP drive - you should see a number of directories

    the program I posted - was a free program - Recuva - but you need a standalone system -

    could try http://www.ubcd4win.com/contents.htm this is another standalone system and has a number of tools for restoring files =
    on the website
    look under
    TOOLS
    and then scroll down to
    Recovery

    I have used the boot cd - but not the recovery programs from the drive - so not sure if they run OK standalone

    If the harddrive hasnt been overwritten yet hopefully since its a laptop has anyone suggested pulling out the drive and using a usb sata/ ide connector.I have one and more times than not it has salvaged things from supposedly dead harddrives.I realize in this case the drive isnt dead and just maybe she will be able to find whatever is valuable to her so it isnt lost forever.If shes able to find the pix etc then put them on a cd/dvd for future safekeeping.Always remember computers dont last forever, harddrives and motherboards fail and computers arent meant to be a filing cabinet or storage facility.Things that are irreplacable such as pix, music, documents should be kept on cds/dvds.
