On Ubuntu, is there any way to search for files on multiple hard disk partitions at once? I'd like to search the contents of all of my hard disk partitions at the same time.

I have a 320GB hard disk. I only use either ubuntu or kubuntu (12.04 for now). I don't want to use windows or any other dual boot os. And i need only 3 partitions on my hard disk. One for the OS and remaining two for data storage. I don't want to create swap also.
Now can i create all primary partitions on the hard disk. Are there any disadvantages in doing so.
First time posting after reading the forums for a long time, looking at posts from other HP-suffering would-be Ubuntu users.
I have a HP DV6 laptop with a 750GB HD, Intel i7 and 6GB RAM. I downloaded Ubuntu 64bit and started to install it on my laptop. First issue was that there are 4 primary partitions on the laptop hard disk.
I have accidentally removed two partitions. I installed TestDisk and started Analysing to detect the lost partitions.
the lost partitions are in /dev/sda. my Ubuntu installation and TestDisk of course are also on /dev/sda. I want to recover the whole partitions not copy some data, which means I will have to write a new table. is this ok, both being on the same hard drive?
Hi, I have installed ubuntu 12.04 on a pc formally running XP. The PC has two disk drives. The first was for the operating system and the second with two partitions for my music and photos. Ubuntu does not recognise the second hard disk and Gparted shows it as unallocated. The partitions do not show up. How do allocate and mount the partitions on my second disk.
GParted detects 12 /sda partitions and a few unallocated partitions on my 16 gig SSD. I have installed ChrUbuntu on this machine a number of times, and I haven't ever "cleanly" installed it (I haven't ever wiped the disk prior to reinstallation) - I suspect that this has something to do with the partitions that are showing up here.
I have two physical hard disks, one around 200GB and one 1TB. I had the large one splitted into 3 partitions around 300GB each. I used Windows XP.
Yesterday I formatted the small disk and installed Ubuntu 10.4 (trying not to mess with anything in the large disk).
Now from within Ubuntu I can see only the third partition of the large disk (referring as size 1TB).
I lost half of my hard disk partitions like 275 Gb from my 500 Gb HDD i was running Ubuntu 12.04 x64 + windows 7 pro x64, after losing the partition i lost the access to each of the operating system even that i was still have the windows 7 partition i did a fix to the grub by using boot repair and nothing happened still have this msg "Multiple partitions".
