Recently I was experimenting with my PC by installing Ubuntu on it. I noticed that the installation was not going well and try to abort it midway. Given that my pc already has windows 7 on it, I managed to boot into windows. But now I notice that 70GB that I was going to allocated to Ubuntu is gone. It no longer appears in windows. What can I do please?
Installation of Ubuntu has gone wrong
The partition that was created for Ubuntu is still present on your HDD. However, you have to fetch it through Disk Management.
1. From Start menu, type “compmgmt.msc” >> hit Enter.
2. From the left pane, go to Storage >> Disk Management.
3. Here, the partition will be visible. Right-click on it and select “Delete Volume”.
If you wish to create a new partition, right-click on the “Unallocated Space” and select “New Simple Volume”. This Microsoft KB will help you creating the partition.
If you wish to install Ubuntu again, just keep the "Unallocated Space" and while installing Ubuntu, make a new partition for its installation.
