I am new to Linux. I have previously used Ubuntu 16.04 LTS . I have recently installed Fedora 26. In Ubuntu I used to have two disks named 'DiskE' and 'DiskF'. After installing Fedora I cannot find them. How can I open the files contained in 'DiskE' and 'DiskF'?

For easy to use graphical user interface, use Gnome Disks (it should be pre-installed) to view all disks and partitions on them. You can then select any partition and mount it, or change its settings so that it's mounted automatically on start-up.

If you don't find them there, then most probably they've been overwritten or removed during installation process.

Are those Windows disks formatted as NTFS? If so, then in Nautilus (the Gnome file manager), click on "+ Other Locations". Hopefully, you'll find your disks in the "On This Computer" section at the top.

No they aren't there. Any other way?
