The image you post shows that the 1TB drive is recognized and has no partition(s) and no filesystem. You might take a look at the link below which discusses partition(s) and filesystems on Linux. If you have data on this drive, what type of data/filesystem is it?:

I didn't format it since i had windows 8, the files on it date from before that, i think i transfert all my c: dick before installing zorin so it should have win8 on it too.

and for the type of date there is like video music games and more, all my other stuff goes on my second hard drive so if i catch a bug i just have that to lost even i don't want to but if a need to format and nothing else works i will do it.

I'm not familiar with disk utility so I'm not sure what it shows. But the output of fdisk -l (lower case L at the end) might clarify. You probably need root privileges.

Code:
wim@aa0:~$ sudo fdisk -l
[sudo] password for wim: 

Disk /dev/sda: 8069 MB, 8069677056 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 981 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0003255d

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1         918     7367680   83  Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2             918         981      509953    5  Extended
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda5             918         981      509952   82  Linux swap / Solaris

Disk /dev/sdb: 4127 MB, 4127195136 bytes
127 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1023 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 7874 * 512 = 4031488 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000451df

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1   *           1        1023     4027520    b  W95 FAT32
Partition 1 has different physical/logical endings:
     phys=(1023, 126, 62) logical=(1022, 126, 62)
The above shows the 'main' harddisk (sda) with 2 partitions as well as a second hard disk (sdb) with one partition.

The other command that can help is mount
Code:
wim@aa0:~$ mount
/dev/sda1 on / type ext4 (rw,noatime,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
/dev/sdb1 on /media/PENDRIVE type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=1000,shortname=winnt)
Please post the results of the 2 commands.

Open a terminal with <ctrl><alt>t (that is, press control, alt and t at the same time). After running a command, you can select the result with the mouse and use <ctrl><shift>c to copy and next paste it in the browser.

//Edit
When pasting in a post on the forum, please use code tags for results from commands. Type [code], paste the result and type [/code]

So [code]paste text here[/code] gives below result
Code:
paste text here

What you saw in post #4 was the commands (I did mark them in bold) plus their results. At the prompt (jacinthe@jacinthe-Bureau:~$) type sudo fdisk -l (remember, lowercase L) and press <enter> and post the results. Same for mount.

Is this the only user you created for Zorin? jacinthe@jacinthe-Bureau:~$ :
Also, after you type in the command and are prompted for a password, type it in carefully. You will NOT see any output on the screen so after typing it in, just hit the Enter key. Passwords are also case-sensitive.

If I understand correctly, the 1TB external is basically a backup with your windows files or do you also have a windows installation there?

OK, from the fdisk command, it can be determined that your second hard disk is there (sdb) and it is partitioned (as it has sdb1).

I'm not familiar with Zorin (it's Ubuntu based if I'm not mistaken) but I expect the partition of the second harddisk to show in the file manager in which case and you can simply click (or double) click it. It might however have a 'funny' name in the file manager which makes it a little difficult to recognize. You can take a screenshot of the file manager (straight after you have opened it) and post it here (as you did for disk utility) and we can see if we can recognize it there.

An alternative 'workaround' is to create a mount point in the directory /mnt and mount the partition of the second hard drive there. This is a temporary solution meaning that you have to do this after each reboot; it can be made permanent.

Create mount point; you can use any sensible name instead of 'mywindowsdisk'
Code:
sudo mkdir /mnt/mywindowsdisk
Mount the partition
Code:
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/mywindowsdisk
Next you should be able to find it in the file manager by navigating to filesystem -> mnt -> mywindowsdisk.

OK, let us know what works.

OK, in ubuntu it looks like the attachment. My windows partitions were labeled in windows, so are easily recognizable. But the 27GB and 125GB partitions are not so easily recognizable as to 'what they are'. 'Zorin' looks different; what are the options under the 'go' menu; if I remember correctly, older Ubuntu versions had the option to go other drives in there.

PS
I notice that in Zorin's filemanager you don't have a file system; instead, just beneath 'Videos' you have a folder called '/' that contains the folder 'mnt'.

PPS
If no other forum users are able to help, I suggest that you use the alternative approach that I mentioned.
