Retrieval of files
Linux neophyte here; so be forewarned.
I have an older laptop that I had installed Ubuntu 14.04 on and, when an 'update' to 15.1 was offered, i downloaded it.
What I ended up with was a notice on the screen [now gone] that indicated that my system could not handle the upgrade due to space limitations [i'm being told]
In the meantime, I have uploaded Mint on the same machine, and, am just wondering whether, or,how there is any way to retrieve the files the way windows might have stored in in an "old" ( ??? ) file on the machine itself.
Not sure if i'm explaining myself in the most goodest of ways, but could sure use some help.......
