I think my laptop's HD has crashed. When I turn it on, it makes a "click-click" sound before giving a "Operating system not found" black screen (whilst booting into Windows 7). So I have booted up the laptop from Ubuntu on a USB. Two questions:
- Am I correct in concluding an HD failure?
- Is there any way to recover my files by using bootable USB Ubuntu? Can I view files on my HD? I can't seem to be able to find anything that looks like my HD in /media or /dev and Wubi (which is the only Ubuntu I've used before) has a /host folder that links to your Windows partition.
Thanks in advance. Hope I can recover my files somehow.
